Interesting species and great photo Razvan! Very good low POV, excellent composition, wonderful colours and good sharpness.

Salut Razvan,
Interesanta captura ta cu detalii bune si culori naturale. Fain surprinsa de la mica distanta. Iarna asta a cam dat de furca pasarilor. A poposit rata mare in centrul Timisorii langa bazinele cu apa pentru porumbei.....Iar acum o saptamana am vazut o barza rotindu-se in parcul central din Timisoara.....Incredibil ce comportament deviat au ajuns sa aiba pasarile.....
