Hello Paul,
Great details in this little fellow!
I like the point of view and the proud expression of the bird...
Excellent details in the plumage, macro work well done with a fine non-intrusive background!

Hi Paul,
a nice capture.
Good composition drawing the eye immediately to the insect in the Wagtail's mouth. A great low-down POV.
Sharp with good detail. Perfect DOF.
However something about it is too flat. I think you need to fiddle with the contrast until you see the photo "pop". Maybe a bit of a brighten aswell.
Great shot otherwise.
Well done,

Hi Paul.
welcome home to the autumn.
It's a nice picture and moment of sädesärlan with a prey.
Well exposedm nice colours and pretty good sharpness.
I really like the low POV.
Well done.

Hoi Paul,
mooie pose van deze 'witte kwik' met voer.
De groene achtergrond kleurt er goed bij.
Groeten, Jacob

Hi Paul,
Altijd leuk om kwikstaartjes te zien en deze heeft waarschijnlijk een aantal jongen om te voeren. Mooie compositie en een hele mooie achtergrond met het grijs en groen.
