Ha paul,

Eén van de meest kenmerkende vogels van Zuid-Afrika en zonder meer een fotogenieke verschijning. Het lila van de keel komt op deze foto mooi naar voren. Jammer dat de kop niet helemaal scherp is. Verder mooie plaat!

groet,
Zeno.

Hello Paul,
great shot, the details and the sharpness on the bird are very nice. I like the neutral BG it does show off this little beauty so well.
TFS..Sky

Beautyful bird, colors and composition. I would have put the bird more on right to give it more "presence", but it's my tought.

Great photo!

Hello Paul,
Leuk om deze vogel ook eens van zijn 'minder mooie' kant te zien. Verrassend. En een prachtige foto. Scherp tegen een mooi contrasterende achtergrond. En dan ook nog oogcontact.
Groeten,
Peter

bonjour paul
un des plus beaux oiseaux que je n'ai jamais vu,ici il manque un peu de netteté,mais les couleurs sont belles et j'aime beaucoup le POV qui place l'oiseau devant le bleu du ciel qui se degrade vers le blanc;
