Lovely moment with open wing, also the eye is perfect.
You did very well, I can enjoy of these picture.
Muy buena luz, muy buen detalle; hacer esto con una bridge indica talento. Excelente recorte. Buen trabajo.
Thanks for liking my recent picture and leaving your observations on it.
This Sunbeam you shot in Peru is a good looking bird. Considering that it was unsettled on the branch with its wings fluttering, you have managed a fairly sharp image. The head, in particular, has been well captured.
Well done and TFS.
