I think I am going to add Cuba to my list of destinations. It looks like birding there is great and you've made the best of it. Keep those great shots coming - they are a pleasure to look at. TFS.

Best Regards,

Hello Mario,
Another Cuban beauty. I agree with Martin, Cuba is rising on my list of destinations. Fantastic photo in wonderful colours and with great sharpness. Excellent pose, POV, DOF, BG and composition. Great quality!


This is a high quality image that you have posted. The Sharpness and detail of the subject is excellent. The lighting allows good detail of the subject to be shown. Your POV, DOF and Bg make this excellent.
