Hoy os propongo esta pequeña disputa de abejarucos por este posadero. Al estar la colonia en un talud, el punto de vista desde arriba es de lujo, ya que queda la copa del árbol que utilizan como posadero justo delante de la cara. El fondo que véis es el límite del campo arado con el bosque de ribera que queda a su izquierda dando esos dos tonos que véis. Cambiando el escondite de posición se puede elegir entre un fondo completamente marrón, verde, o como en este caso, ambos.
Espero que os guste y gracias a todos por vuestros comentarios.

Un saludo,

Kiko Arcas

P.D. Dedicada a Maite, espero que te guste.

Amazing colors! Very crisp and clean shot. You captured a lot of drama with your perfect timing and POV. The details AND the exposure are exceptional. Excellent DOF and beautiful background. A favorite!

Hello Kiko,
I really like the duo-tone soft background, it really emphasizes the colors of the bea-eaters plumages. The details are fantastic. :)
