Fantastic photo. Almost everything is perfect. These birds love you, because they love it to be photographed by you. What a pose! (Do you feed them every day?)

Hi Kiko,
Lovely pairs, very pretty colors , and a very interesting BG to match.
The brilliance of green on their breast is so nice and have well contrasted the Brown BG.
Nice Presentation.
TFS & Cheers

Vaya! Otro colegui de León! ¡Y además qué magnífico fotógrafo!
¡Vaya fotazo la de estos abejarucos! Me encanta la pose que tienen los dos juntos.
Supongo que hiciste algún proceso con el fondo para obtener ese color tan uniforme. Ya me contarás cómo lo hiciste, es algo que me gustaría aprender. La foto es una pasada en nitidez, luz y color y la composición una auténtica maravilla.
Mi más sincera bienvenida a TN!
Saludines

Hi Kiko,
Great composition you have here. Good pose of your models with a fine looking coloured bg.
Good eyecontact and pov.
TFS Paula.

Hi Kiko
you have captured a beautiful pair with good sharpness.
The colours and light is very nice.
Lovely pose and well composed.
Well done.

Hi Kiko.
These two are in such a good position and that made the composition look great. Nice bit of motion on the tail as well.Colours and eye contact add in making this a very nice image to view.
