Bonjour Gérard,
Ta précédente image d'un paysage namibien en version large est splendide, mais je viens saluer cet oiseau au plumage tout à fait extraordinaire. Quelle beauté et quelle pose! Parfaitement integrée dans son environnement cette espèce d'outarde. Une grande luminosité dans ton image aussi. Quelle belle série tu nous proposes ici.
Un grand merci!
Bonne semaine
Amitiés
Anne

Bonjour Gérard,
A superb portrait of the Northern Black Korhaan.
The POV shows its features with excellent sharpness and colours so that it is well sen against the dry grassy BG.
Merci et a bientôt,
Amicalement,
Ivan

Cher Gérard

Il est bien difficile d'ajouter quelque chose de nouveau à ce que Anne a si bien dit. En effet, le plumage de ce bel oiseau est magnifique. Ce dessin zébré, je ne l'ai encore jamais vu et je te remercie pour cette publication unique en son genre.

Amitiés

Markus
