Bonjour Fatih,
Très belle lumière faisant resplendir de délicates couleurs.

Hallo Fatih
Thanks for sharing this beautiful Brown Honeyeater with us. Tiny birds like these have a special place in my heart, and what makes this one extra special is the beautiful charcoal coloured curved beak. The arrangement of soft colours in the background compliments the image well. Thanks for sharing. Kind regards.
