Felitaciones por haber captado a esta pareja de "Picos de lacre" en posiciones armoniosamente divergentes uno de otro. También, por la muy bien lograda gama de colores afines sobre los que se destaca aún más el bellísimo rojo lacre de picos y antifaces. Tratando de aportar con mi crítica, puedo observar que el enfoque, a veces esquivo, se ha distraído en una espiga que se observa a izquierda de la imagen en detrimento de los pájaros. Finalmente, un consejo, creo que quizás -salvo que haya sido en extremo larga- captar la hoja entera sobre la que se posa el ave de la derecha, hubiera enriquecido un poco más la obra. De cualquier modo, una bella imagen.

Bonjour Jose,
Très belle image de ces deux oiseaux originaires d'Afrique. Intéressant de lire qu'ils se sont installés au Portugal aussi. Les couleurs de cette photo sont de grande subtilité, la lumière très belle. Elle met en valeur la beauté du plumage de ces deux Bico-de-lacre.
Bien vu!
Amitiés
Anne
