Hola my friend,
What a "Bayramesque" capture Ahmet, quite remowed from your usual genre, but still, a fine capture of a beautiful copulating pair within their natural habitat. The finely illuminated composition (no flash?) is sharply depicted, with great pattern and colouration details. TFS indeed!
Mehmet

Salam Ahmet. Excellent framing of this couple having their moments. I like the sharp details and very good perch on that flower. The silenced background helps popping out the image. An early wish of the coming Eid Mubarak to you and TFS. Regards. Jusni

Bu türden ben de çekmiştim. Renkler çok canlı normelde, en azından benim çektiklerim öyle. Burda sanki flaş kullanılmış ve renklerde sapma var gibi geldi. belki ben yanılıyorumdur. Keskinlik kompozisyon ve sabitlenen an açısından oldukça güzel bir kare. Elinize sağlık.

Merhaba hocam,
Mükemmel zamanlama, mükemmel manzara
Çok güzel detaylarla harika bir kare ama 1 cm daha sağdan kırpılabilirdi bence.
