Does my butt look fat ?

Maybe it is the power of suggestion, but this bird's expression with its head tilted right and eye looking back and down seems to be saying exactly what you suggested in the title and composition balancing text...;-)
Thanks for sharing,

A very nice image Gabi and a not that made me laugh :-). Excuse number 2: "The text improves the composition by providing more balance to it", is one I need to remember very wel for my inbalanced images! I can see from the pose he's trying to keep his balance. Well written note to go with the image, with this combination Rod will have to leave the image where it is ;-)

Gabi, we know photography is also a matter of taste.
I wouldn't have the text upon the picture, but, since you like it, no problem.
I like composition and "pose". Very nice open wings and great details.

The title would probably be a winning entry for a humorous caption contest and it works great for that purpose so I dont see why you have to add it to the image too (it only detracts). But otherwise this is a very funny and nice composition. Thanks for sharing!

An excellent shot. Outstanding colors and detail. This has an almost 3D look to it. You have nailed this one really well. Exposure looks perfect to me. I shot a few of these type shots, but nothing of this quality. Well done! (I would be the perfect gentlemen and reply absolutely not!)

Personal assessment of the photo: good.
Capacity of evocation in me: strong.
Strong visual impact.
Personal assessment of the note: complete.
Thank you very much Gabi.
Sorry, I have no time to write a good comment.

What a great pose you have caught, Gabi.
Very funny picture and title to fit. : )
Fantastic details on the spread-out wings... and tail. : P
I would have preferred no text on the image.
I think the "imbalance" of the picture would have given the impression that the anhinga is on the verge of losing her balance, which would have added to the tension of the shot.
Great job in any case, and TFS. : )

Great shot with good timing. Nice clear details with the sharpness spot on. Well done. I am not going to comment on the butt! TFS.

You bird looks very supercilious Gabi! Quite a snob I think:) Wonderful capture, nice and sharp, and excelelnt contrasts against the blue sky. Very well done.

Gabi bonjour, excellent shot plein de vie!! Ce Snakebird séchant ces ailes au soleil est superbe de piqué et de couleurs. Bonne composition également. Le texte!! n'apporte absolument rien au contraire!! Il n'est pas utile!! la photo est assez evocatrice par elle même. Grants Didier.

Nice shot Gabi, though not keen on the added text. Good POV and nice composition and sharpness. Great plumage details.

Excellent shot and well done on the composition.
I don't like writting on an image and I don't like jaggies in an image from incorrect resizing.

Hi Gabi, what an odd expression and pose for this Anhinga, but it is still astonishingly well captured. excellent shot.
