Hallo Paul,
Bijzondere foto van deze parende Burchell Spoorkoekoeken. Goede scherpte en mooie natuurlijke kleuren. Jammer dat er net een takje voorlangs loopt. Maar daar heb je natuurlijk geen invloed op. Prima compositie.

Hallo Paul
My time on Trek Nature is very limited now a day and I missed out on some great images and especially of the birds of the Kruger you are currently sharing, as I am also sharing the same series at the moment. The coucal have the most beautiful call, and is not called the rain bird for nothing. I see you encountered the same problems Loot and I also had and that it is not always easy to find birds or animals in a clear view without branches or twigs in front of their faces or other body parts, but I rather like this image of the 2 birds, showing lots of the surrounding in which they can be founded. Thanks for sharing and best regards.

Hi Psul,
the branches really gives agood graphical effect to the composition.Definitely the birds show an outstanding capture with the contrast well seen and the colours stands out beautifully.
Nicely taken in good sharpness, and most of all you have capture the right moment.
