It's so nice to see a post from you again! You selected a beautiful bird for your return - one that I have not seen before. His colors are exquisite - nature comes up with the best color combinations. Excellent clarity - each feather stands out. Hope to see lots more from you.

meravigliosa cattura di questo bellissimo uccello, eccellenti POV, DOF e composizione verticale con la bella posa laterale e la luce riflessa nell'occhio, straordinaria definizione dei dettagli del piumaggio, bellissimi i colori e BG.
Grazie e complimenti.

This is a wonderfully sharp image Jan. It is an effective pose showing the profile of the head and nice catchlight in the eye. He is nicely isolated from the out of focus background.

Hello Jan Hendrik,
Thank you for your critiques.
This is an excellent photo!
And you mentioned it in your photographer's note: it is a beautiful bird.
I verified where Thabazimbi is situated. You forced me to leave the safe haven called Kruger:-) And it is actually situated close to Botswana.
Once again..excellent photography!

Hi Jan. It make me wonder some time why mother nature give a bird a different colour head like this . You have good detail in the feathers with natural looking colours. A nice side view with light in the eye. well done TFS

Hi Jan Hendrik
Yes please, I'll have 2 thanks.
Ek het bietjie lanklaas by jou besoek afgelê en ek sien jy het duidelik pragtige
materiaal gelaai. Jammer man, ek pleit totaal skuldig.
This is one cute little bird and you have really done justice to its beauty. You've
captured and posted a wonderful shot of this beautiful Cape Rock Thrush. Every
little feather in its place and accounted for. The BG is great and with the darkish
OOF colouration it did a fine job to compliment the subject. The colours are just
stunning and the tiny catchlight gives life to the black eye.
Well done and TFS.
