Hi Vera,

A beautiful capture of this pair of hens. I love the positions of the two - shows them off nicely. The colors and details of the faces and feathers are excellent. A wonderful composition on the green grass.

Hello Vera,
I've only seen these birds once and I think they're very beautiful in their shiny and spotted plumage. They're very well captured here as they're picking away. A very fine composition showing great details and beautiful colours. Well done!
