Absolutely beautiful. Excellent composition and the background compliments the subject perfectly.

Well done and TFS

Hello Eduardo,
This is not Oriolus oriolus.
This is Oriolus chinensis, probably taken in an aviary in a zoo.
Technically this is a fine shot but you should say where you took it as this species is not Hungarian.

Hallo Eduardo
Now this is surely a bird that can be associated with many things: Summer, sunshine, happiness, joy and many more. The bright canary yellow of this birdís plumage is stunning and very catching. I like the black stripe across the eye, as it gives a masked appearance. You have captured this vividly coloured bird in a great pose, showing nice details of the chest and facial feathers as well as the beautiful eye and the soft peach coloured beak. Thanks for sharing.
Best regards.
