Hi Tim, good posure, what an acrobat. Where do we find these birds?
Thanks for sharing Reina

Hahahaha, that's the best one of your serie.
This Position is better that of a Circus-artist. A little clown?

Perfect timing on this wonderful shot, Tim!

I imagine that he didn't remain like this for very long, and you were there to see it, how lucky for you and us.

Great capture, excellent details, colors, exposure and moment.

Thank you!

Funny chap!
You caught him well, Tim.

La pose de l'oiseau est très amusante et acrobatique.

Félicitations pour cette composition originale.

Merci Tim.


Hi Tim
It is action picture. Great shot. Good color and composition. Love the POV and BG.
It is a bit soft, but never the less very good.

Hi Tim,
What a great pose! Timing was perfect here. Exposure is spot on with the beautifully saturated colors, and sharp detail.
A shot that really brings a big laugh!

Ha..ha... Wonderful shot. Good timing. Congrats!

Hello Tim, this is another excellent with this beautiful bird. I like it very much. Great sharpness, details and wonderful colours, great POV too. Thank you.

Hi, Tim.
What a wonderful pose! Excellent composition, sharpness and beautiful natural colors.

Very beautiful colours, and well captured. I like the pose. Good work.


Amazing shot of this colorful bird clinging to the tree. Does he prefer this to just squatting onthe branch!!??

Hi Tim,
I laughed out loud when I first saw this :-) He really looks in trouble and I can think of a few things he might be thinking! Great capture.
