Aahh.. the charming visage of the Vulturine Guineafowl Acryllium vulturinum! Another nice addition to your expanding gallery of galliform close-ups. Tricky exposure, but just right.

This is a greatr shot Annick, but your model is rather ugly. I like how you have isolated this charachters head for the BG. Good quality work. TFS.

what a wondeful collection of birds you have in your portfolio. This one in particular looks like quite the character, looks like a snobby professor ;-). Very nice portrait with excellent details.

Increíble agudeza en este primer plano con excelente OOF y perfecto fondo Annick.
No se puede hablar de la belleza del ave, pero tu captura lo beneficia, sin dudas.
Excelente encuadre y elección del recorte con atinado DOF bien ajustado y al igual que el control de la luz.
Bien hecho... gracias por compartirla.
Incredible sharpness in this close up with excellent OOF and perfect bottom Annick.
One cannot speak of the beauty of the bird, but your capture it he benefits, without doubts.
Excellent framing and election of the cutting with accurate DOF very adjusted and the same as the control of the light. Well done... thank you for sharing.

I must say that this individual looks quite devilish. More like a living dead and not a normal bird.
Very nice details, perfect exposure an nice light from above.
