Hi Annick

Great pose and wonderful use of the frame. The detail and exposure are, as always, spot-on.


HI Annick,
that's beautiful, I like that moment very much.
So sharp details, so warm colours, thanks and greetings

Hi Annick
Locking at the bottom, impala are really Mc Donald of the bush due to the sign on its bottom and its capacity to become quickly a hamburger for the lions or leopards. This female try do do the job of the bird eating insect on the skin.

Hahaha :-)) Very funny shot, Annick :-)
Must be a very awkward position! I guess that it's the Oxpecker's job usually :-)
Excellent pose and an effective close-in crop.
Really detailed with great clarity.
Superb DOF.

Well done my friend!


The moment you've captured here is very lovely! I like it.
Best wishes,

Hello Annick

Great capture of the tooth.
The look on it's face is the determination trying to scratch "that" itch.
Well illuminated with vibrant colours.
