Hello Jose,
Astounding image with bee captured moments before becoming dinner. Tac sharp focus while showing exceptional detail and an array of gorgeous rich colors. Love the beautiful clean BG and the wonderful eye contact you managed to obtain. I would be completely thrilled to make a shot like this. Great work!!!

Hello Jose,
A very beautiful photo of a bird I've seen many times during the last weeks on Lesvos. Your timing was perfect. Great sharpness and beautiful natural colors.

Hi Jose,what say? Absolutely fantastic this bee-eater with a bee on the beak! The quality no needs comment,a masterwork another time! Have a nice weekend and thanks,Luciano

Hello Jose ,
Beautiful timing against perfect BG. I like its composition too. Nice color of this Bee-eater.
Thanks for showing,
Regards and have a nice WE

Hi José,
Beautiful pic, technically excellent and very spectacular. I might crop the blank part from the right to create a diagonal composition - but otherwise a fabulous image.
Kind regards, László

Outstanding detail and color. Exposure looks absolutely perfect. I think I see pollen on the legs of the bee.
