Hello Achim,
I really had to look twice before I did figure out in what kind of wonderful pose this lovely bird is hanging on to the flower.
Great to see how the legs are pointed upwards and the head turned down.
Mos wonderful details in the feathers and yellow in the eye.
Sharpness, composition and lighting are spot on.
Perfect work. My compliments.
Thanks for sharing.
Warm regards,

Hi Achim,

A nice image of the bird at Hyde Park, the photo has a good composition, sharpness and nice colors. Thanks for sharing.


Hi Achim,
Great image of this Noisy Miner on what appears to be a very pretty Grevillea. I love the pose. You did well, these guys can move fast at times. Nice composition.

This is priceless! A very amusing shot with superb colours and details

I saw this yesterday but ran out of :) :) - - - wonderful point of view and pose. Great! ha ha Seeing the bird upside brings a refreshing newness. It's like in art class when they turn something upside so the student will look at the lines differently. Very cool! :)

Hi Achim,
I remember this clown from Australia! A really charming bird I thought. Great capture, very well-timed, sharp and in fine colours. Excellent composition!
TFS and regards, Ulla

Very good capture of this fellow hanging upside down on a branch, Achim.
The focus is quite sharp and the colours are very natural.
Well done and TFS.

Hello Achim

A very unusual pose,perhaps like our nuthatch it creeps along like this.The focus is spot on with wonderful plumage detail and excellent colours.The beak and eye stand out nicely.TFS


Looks like he is up to something devious with his expression. I like this random capture.
Interesting marking on this bird. TFS

Hallo Achim,
eine super Aufnahme, mit prima Schaerfe und einer ungewoehnlichen Pose von dem Vogel. Der verrenkt sich ja foermlich und von deiner Perspektive sieht man das so richtig gut.
Toll gestalted und prima Qualitaet.

Hi Achim,
A cute looking bird with sharp details on its plumage and a majestic pose. Superb lighting and exposure here. The BG illustrates the habitat well and I like your POV and the wonderful composition. Kudos.

Extraordinary perching..., Achim.
Good sharpness and light.

Hello Achim,
I chose this shot from your gallery, partly because I have seen the Noisy miner myself in Sydney and partly because this is an excellent sharp capture with a good pose and fine composition on the Grevillea.
Very nice shot!

Hi Achim,
I look at your portfolio. It contains many nice shot from many countries. All of them very nice. This is also one of best with nice composition, sharpness, POV and interesting looking of bird. TFS
