Perfect focus and impressive sharpness and colors,a beautiful upupa in a very professional composition.Thanks for share,Luciano

Hi Thorston,
A really pretty bird in nice focus. What a contrast you have in this image. A beautifull bird framed with razor wire?
Happy new year!

Hello Thorsten.
Nice capture on that chain link. The bird is well exposed with vivid details of the plumage. Looking forward to more great shots in 2011.
Thanks and greeting from Malaysia - Jusni

The composition is superb!
The fences have a lot of added value to this picture.

Hi Thorsten.
I like this species so much, Have watched it few time and even tried to take shots. However, I could not get any good pictures. You have done it. I like scene a lot. Wire fence gives special charm to the picture. Image of a cute bird is also very nice as well as colouration of the picture and splendid BG. My compliments and best wishes in coming New Year.
