[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
At Jardin Majorelle in Marrakech. Several small birds would stand in the shade of the cactus, then fly up and peck the purple seeds off to eat. Prefocused on spot with a bit of cheating (slow burst mode). No cropping.

Fantastic! What a beautiful bird in flight Josh.
Congratulations on this great capture.
Regards, Krzysztof.

This is one odd but beautiful image it deserves more poins thats for sure

Great capture of this very interesting and well composed shot, Josh!
The detail in the bird's wings and the foreground cactus and plant stalks are wonderful for this kind of shot.
I am not sure that I could have done so well.
Thank you for sharing it with us, and welcome to TN!

Great picture! I like this to, because I have the Panasonic FZ30 and...I go to the same place(s) in about three weeks...
So I hope that I can make sometjing like this...

The planning that went into this capture was justly rewarded. The composition and variety in this image really make it one of my favorites. TFS.
