Hallo Vivian,
Je zat blijkbaar op een erg goede plek. Haarscherpe foto en mooie kleuren. Goede compositie. Overigens vind ik de vogelshow in Avifauna mooier en beter geschikt om te fotograferen.

You have captured the very characteristic facial details of this bird, Viv.
I especially like the hooked beak and the intense eyes.
Well done and thanks for sharing.

wonderful portrait of the pretty bird, vivian! :-)
good close-up with nice details on the face and feathers.
i really like the looking-down pose.
well seen & captured, thor.

ps. i am not so sure about the Red Kite either - i thought they had grey heads, maybe some kind of buzzard?

I like how you framed the subject in the picture.

Hi Vivian,

I apologise for my long absence. The hectic pace of life leaves one little time for relaxation and hobbies.

What a good portrait shot of this Eagle. It seems to be looking at something very intently, probably food. Well done.


Hi Vivian,
powerful, expressive pose, perfectly approached for a strictly rectangular view. Beautifully rich and soft colours. The white neutral background works very well here, too. Thank you! With best regards,
