Hello Mario,

Great picture of this beautiful bird. Composition and POV are good. Great sharpness and wonderful detail. Beautiful light and wonderful colours.
Well done,

I just like this photo of the White-eyed Vireo. This bird looks so fragile. The claws are emphasized well and are clear and with excellent detail. I like the background of the green leaves and patches of blue coming through. Good photography. Very well done and thanks for sharing.
Kind regards

Hi Mario, this is a smashing shot with lovely vibrant light and colours, the Vireo is pin sharp with very good detail on the plumage and the eye is amazingly clear and bright. Very handsome and unusual bird, spent your time well in Mexico. Lovley compositon.
