Hi Yoram,

Superb action shot, very nice composition and what an amazing pose to catch the Pied Kingfisher in the BG, really nice detail and great colours too, well done.

TFS Hilary :o)

C'est vraiment une très belle image, la couleur est particulièrement vive, la netteté impeccable.
C'est vraiment spécial de voir cet autre oiseau qui arrive en arriêre ,est-ce un prédateur???
Merci et au revoir...JP

Hi Yoram,
very theatrical composition!! the drama of the picture is great. The quiet green bird, looking at the other side and the figure of the grey one, like a ghost is incredible.
The colours, light, POV and composition and focus are outstanding! very well done!! compliments,

simply great, toda, Ori

Bellissima foto, Yoram, complimenti!

Hi Yoram,'
it's nice to show these two species, but I think it's a assemblage of two images. I think the size, shadowdirection and light intensity doesn't match at all. If it is so, please write this in your note.
They are two fantastic birds though and nice captures. But maybe you can convince me I'm wrong and accept my humble apologies then.
Regards, Jacob

Hi Yoram,
a very fine picture of the Kingfísher.
The colours are amazing and the Pied KF as BG is beautiful.
Good details, well composed and good POV.
Well done.

Very nice shot my friend well done

To Bufo: I'm so happy to tell you that you are completely wrong!!! I was with Yoram at the field when it's happened. We were under camo cover and I missed this action. Yoram is a very good nature photographer and most of all a very honest and noble person. He will never cheat about his pictures. I know him personally.
Thank you.

To Yoram: I'm still very much envy about this image. You did great! and it's very unique and beautiful.

Hi Yoram,
This is a very succesfull and interesting action shot. It's great to see two species of kingfishers in one frame. Very well done and TFS

Hi Yoram,

This is one of those pictures where the viewer really wants to know what the heck is gonna happen next. A rare and unusual but fantastic shot. :)

Excelent timing, with a perfect composition.
