Hello Christodoulos
what a lively view of this shiny little bird. The feathers are so fine ans well defined under the best lighting.
Excellent isolation in a pleasant background.
Very well presented composition.


About 3 years ago, I shot this bird in New Delhi, Chris. Apparently, it had migrated there in winter from some colder place.
Your picture of it is simply outstanding in terms of POV, focus and colours. That spot of blue on the throat looks beautiful.
Warm regards.

Hello Christodoulos,
A perfectly exposed photo with excellent detail and background.

Hallo Christodoulos
This is a brilliant capture, especially the golden sunlight that you managed to include in this scene. The way the light falls on this Bluethroat's plumage is marvellous. The bird's almost proud pose is great and I like the way it looks at you. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Hola Christodoulos, que belleza de foto de esta inquieta especie, a pesar de la fuerte luz el manejo es excelente, me gusta el color y los detalles del ave, el fondo y el ambiente natural...saludos.

Hello Chris,

Hope life is good in 2013. This is a classic shot, Chris, one which deserves to be in a high priced field guide for birds like samiran's photo. Your subject's clarity is amazing. The colours of the birds and sharp focus make it alive and I wish I could stretch my hand and catch it.Amazing!
Thanks a lot for sharing.....take care...warm regards/Abid

Bonjour Christodoulos,
What a cute bird!You show it so well, especially the blue background adds to the beuaty of the shot reproducing the blue of the bird's throat. As usual excellent light-management and sharpness.
