The sour bug!
Hi Japie. Beautiful images and presentation of both. Excellent Work.
Have a blessed Christmas, I'm off to Hippo Pools for the next 4 days. Hope to get some shots but alas, it has been raining cats and dogs since last night with no prospects of stopping.

There is such remarkable color here, Japie. Striking and vibrant, but with plenty of details. I also appreciate your before and after points of view. Very nice!

Very nice capture, the texture on the plumage is spot-on, especially on the reds.
And welcome to the real world of frustration, it always happens that thet turn the tail on you!
En weereens - Lekker Kersdag vir julle!
