[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This guy was quite active flying around catching insects. Shot this with a 600mm F4 and 1.4x. Not an easy task being on a drifting boat! Comments and crits welcome.

Welcome to TN first of all.
Great moment you capture here. lovely bird with beautiful colors. Good contrast, and good composition. Well done.

Hi Hannes,
Welcome to TN. A splendid shot this is.
Brilliant colours and details, especialy the wing span where each feather is standing out. TFS.

Hello Hannes,

Well, considering the difficulty of being in a boat at the time, you made an excellent job of this!
I love the way you have captured the individual feathers of the wings, and with the sun on his face, he appears to be sun bathing.

The only real downside, for me, is the lack of good eye contact but still a good shot.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)
