nous sommes voisin aujourd'hui mais il n'y aura pas concurrence :)
superbe prise de face, avec des couleurs vives et une composition juste.
An opportunity well taken. What a beautiful big bird with lovely patterns and natural coloured feathers. This is a striking close-up with lots of details to appreciate. A interesting pose as if it was waiting for you to photograph it. The red ring around his eye is really stunning.Thanks for sharing.

Wat een perfecte compositie en perfect standpunt. Alsof hij poseert en zich van zijn beste kant laat zien. Zoals gebruikelijk geweldige scherpte en fantastisch mooie kleuren. Schitterende foto!

Splendida composizione per questo bellissimo francolino che osserva con curioso fastidio, ottima nitidezza per un piumaggio dai colori fantastici, bellissimo BG dagli intrecci colorati. Grazie e complimenti. Ciao Maurizio

I love this one Annick.
Theres nothing quite so comical as a long necked bird eyeing you up.
The coloured face and patterned plumage are nice and sharp.

a powerful, technically perfect, artistically well made character portrait. The whole object precisely within depth of field (tip of beak included), an elegant asymmetrical composition, a well fitting, well supporting savannah background. Great document of wildlife. Thank you!
With best regards,

What a great stare, the direct eye contact is wonderful. The low POV makes him look quite dominant. Sharp, great DOF and very well composed
