Hej Peter,
Great sharp capture of tofsvipan with just the right focusing and DOF. Nice composition and lighting.
Nice shot!

i like this pciture very much where you see the grass with such a perfect DOF for the bird and everything.nice compo.

Hi Peter,
Excellent capture of this lapwing!
I like so much the exercise done with the DOF to get the bird in fous and quickly all the contents on the others planes are so nicely blurred.
It's very good all the details got on the bird, so clear and sharp, specially on the head and the pointing feathers.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

Hej Peter,

Peter lovely and excellent PoV. The sharpness and details and focus is very good. TFS Ganesh

Hi Peter,
Your Lapwing seems to have more plumage on the head than the ones we see here so I wonder if ours is a different species.
Nice photo. Lost a bit of detail in the white feathering. Good and sharp with a nice catchlight.
Well done,

Good low-down POV on this shot.
Great sharpness and good contrsting setting in the grassland.
