[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Whitefronted Bee-eater was sitting quietly on the branch of a dead tree when all of a sudden his neighbour, the Southern Greyheaded Sparrow, popped in to say hello.
The four pics were taken at Mashatu game reserve, the camera was handheld. This sequence just begged to be made into a montage, so we had a try.

The sequence is humourous.
Excellent shots and well done on the compositions.
My fave is the first one. Beautiful.


J'aime beaucoup cette séquence et la mainière dont elle a été mise en scène.
De plus, le fond uni met superbement en valeur les sujets.

Hi Daniel

Nice series of shot. I do wish there was a large post version. Each one looks excellent. Nice presentation too. Thanks.

Hi Daniel, nice concept. Well captured and well put together. Not bad for Nikon! Cheers, Rob

mooie en grappige reeks.

I love birds and this tells a great story.
The shots were extremely sharp for hand held.
What lens were you using?

Hi Daniel
Well done with this montage. They say a picture tells a thousand words, so this one must be telling some four thousand words. That's more said than what the allowed space for notes are. So do that mean I have to give you credit for a good note as well?
I agree with Pam (coasties) that you probably should do a posting on a large format of at least one of the photos. You could attach it as a workshop.
Very well done and TFS.
