Hi Thorsten,
Well composed frame with excellent color, exposure, and sharp details. Good eye contact. Great POV of this preening pose as well :)
Very nice work.

Hi Thor,
Beautiful light and detail in the feathers, colours are excellent. This reminds me of your comment a while ago about 'lead pellets' :-)

Nice shot,

Soooo scharf und die Farben so brilliant, toll gemacht, Thorsten - und diese Pose ist halsbrecherisch, es ist interessant ihnen beim Putzen zuzusehen, nur der Schwan kann das noch toppen. Schönen Wochenstart
