Another version of the image published previously in TE.

when I crossing the external perimeter of the Ecologic Reserve Costanera Sur, I found this scene that seemed to me amused...

The signboard says textually: DANGER - FORBIDDEN TO SWIM... the image of the birds without daring to enter the water, was really attractive.

In this case, I used the clone tool to eliminate few birds that were distant and that it gave the idea of total absence of these animals into the water.

The position of the sun did not help much, but also, I believe that it was worth the trouble.

I love this moment and it is very funny too. If these are english birds they will need "Babel Fish Translation" to read the sign. I tried to find where you cloned the other birds out of the picture, but lo luck - well cloned. I enjoyd this shot and thank for posting.

He hee, funny. Good to see nature heeding our warnings. Nice composition, good stuff.

This is an amusing photo. They are following order by the numbers. Nice compo. Thanx for putting a smile on my face Ricardo.

Original and funny composition. Well done !

Nice alternate version, Ricardo, I had already enjoyed the original posting on TE. Very funny, and a good blend of man-made elements with the animals that are totally oblivious of the instructions provided on the sign :-) Well done.

Hehe. Really funny. law abiding birds! The composition is really good. The technical quality could be better but with that kind of composition it does not matter much. Good work.

Just started wondering around and this photo really stands out of your gallery, pleasant subject and well put on the scene. Maybe it is your trademark but your framing doesn't improve the photo but that's my personal taste.

Good, there aren't too many humorous shots here on TN. This helps brighten up the place between all the scientific and scholarly shots. I find the light is fine.

Lo so! Spesso per noi può essere un pericolo, ma questi animali possono farlo anche in condizioni peggiori!!
Interessante fotografia dai molti significati!!

Parece que la madre estuviera pensando en que sus hijos se refresquen rápido antes de que los vengan a multar por estar allí. jajaja.

Linda foto. Me gustan las fotografías que transmiten algo, más que las que enseñan algo.


Good you eliminated the birds on water. Not the sharpest pic on TN indeed but so funny.
