Fantastic capture of this anhinga, Michal.
What a striking contrast between the black and whites in the feathers.
Well cropped and wonderful pose.
The position of the head gives it a very haughty air.
Lovely details on the face.
TFS. : )

this close up shows very nice the details of the bird. This extra bend in the neck looks really funny this way. Maybe with some PS action the white parts can be made just a little softer.
The only thing of what I'm not really sure of is the composition. The distictive spread wing is well presented, but the right wing is cut of rather bluntly. Also the bill is (too?) close to the frame. I don't know whether you cropped the image, but if you have some space left there I think it would look better (but that's just my humble opinion).
Overall, great picture.

You have got a really good portrait of this bird. Black and white plumage aesthetically stand out agains this smart background. For such a serious background the pose is the right one: half exhibitionist, half amusing.
A wonderful light, the best pof and a careful composition makes an excellent portrait. The bird will buy it surely!:-)

Fantastyczna fotografia, prawdopodobnie jedna z twoich najlepszych! Udalo ci sie go zlapac na idealnym tle, jakosc, szczegoly, kolory, swiatlo - wszystko takie jak trzeba. W dodatku bardzo ciekawy bohater. Poza jest bardzo 'kormoranowa', na pierwszy rzut oka wyglada troche polamany :-)

What a splendid portrait of this very beautiful bird!
Indeed the everglades do contain very many and superb secrtes!
The details here are simply magnificent! All the aspects of the bird are in full focus and the contrast with the BG is lovely.
The light is great, too and the pose of the bird is very nice...it looks like a top-model in a photo-shoot :))
Another aspect of this picture that i like very much is the beak - the only element with warm colors in the shot, so standing out very nicely!
Cheers and TFS

this shot looks wondeful, the bird is posing very well and showing off the wonderful details of its plumage. DOF, sharpness and the exposure is excellent.

I like the unusual pose you captured here Michal. It's an effective presentation agains the dark grey background. The bill looks almost translucent.

Almost a composition in B&W Michel if was not for the beak that reveals him.
I like it a lot: composition, sharpness, color, POV, DOF, focus, lighting, background, framing, notes.
I don't like it: nothing to reclaim.
Excellent post with a great bird perfectly portrayed.

An excellent shot on this Anhinga. Great quality light and a good exposure on him. I really like the dark backround. Makes for an almost studio quality lighting. Nice sharp detail in the plumage. The classic pose as he dires his wings. This really looks great! I am hoping to try and get to Florida this spring during the bird mating season.

Great job Michal.
You managed the light well here, with very good exposure/detail of the black plumage. Interesting composition, pose and POV. I don't miss the bottom half at all..really :)
Looks great on the grey BG as well.
Have a great weekend mf.
