[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
It's been a while since I posted a picture. The trip to the USA didn't get many pictures thanx to an overbooked Delta plane, and the weather here has been gloomy. So a picture taken a month from now last year that I found in my archives. Sadly the area where I thook this shot is now under threat of becoming an entrance through a tunnel under a river.

Hello Jeroen,
What a beauty, what a pose. A splendid bird picture with best composition, sharpness and natural colors. Just great and so cute!
Have a nice weekend

Hallo Jeroen
This is a stunning image for so many reasons. It is an absolute delight to look at this bird and to appreciate it for its beauty. You have captured the movement of the wings so skillfully. I like the whole setting as it has such a pleasant and peaceful appearance. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Hi Jeroen,
Wat een pracht plaat. Een van de mooiste foto's van een Blauwborst die ik ooit gezien heb. Kwalitatief grote klasse, mede door de pose en de bijpassende achtergrond.

Good to see you back, Jeroen.
What a sharp and crisp image despite low shutter speed!
Thanks for sharing this outstanding capture.

great timing, great action shot. superb model.
congratulations Jeroen. thanks for sharing.

Hi Jeroen
Stunning pose!

Hello Jeroen,
Très belle capture de cet oiseau en pleine action. Une composition digne d'un tableau de maître. Bravo !
Best regards.

Hello Jeroen,
This is an excellent capture with such beautiful colors, details & timing. Great composition & presentation of this Blue Throat. TFS & best wishes!


Hello Jeroen,
Stunning picture with an uncommon pose (great timing!). The "zen" composition is perfect for my taste.
Great details, natural colors, I have only compliments!

不論清晰 掌握點 陽光的陰明 都很不錯

Hi Jeroen
Excellent capture with a long lens. I really like how you composed this photo and the pose you captured. Super POV and eye contact.
Thank you for sharing
Best regards

Hello again, Jeroen
This is a lovely image, with very subtle lighting (I think we probably both have other words to describe the lighting conditions ;-) that for some reason reminds me of a Chinese watercolour painting. Great timing, with the raised wings and open bill giving the image a dynamic tension. Was this a single shot or one of a burst? Very nicely done, just a slight shame about the .. ;-)
Best wishes, Nigel.

Really beautiful capture, Jeroen. Quite different form the usual static takes we normally see on TN (which can be beautiful, too).

Excellent image of this lovely bird with great pose..the lighting and composition are superb. tfs.

SAD. A bird this beaufiful losing some territory. I love the pose you captured him in. Love the colours with the blue standing out. Good focus and framing. A great shot! TFS Trevor

Hello Jeroen,
Excellent photograph of Blue Throat, excellent sharpness and details, excellent composition, excellent background and lighting.

Ha Jeroen,

Wat een BEAUTY.
ik ben zelf 4x bij de Rietputten geweest maar ben er niet erg veel tegengekomen, jij hebt meer geluk gehad daar.
Prachtige pose en compositie
Mooi van kleur
