Hello Jiri
nice capture with the details so intact. Exciting perching position with the blue sky so pleasant.
Excellent work and the diagonal perching line is attractive too.

Hola Jiri, que hermosa rapaz que no conocía, a pesar de la percha es una foto muy bonita que muestra con lujo los detalles de la especie, me gusta la luz y el fondo celeste...saludos.

Hello Jiri
Beautiful. It seems to be not so large.
Sharpness and light are good.
