Ola Ana,
A fine capture of this group of visitors to your garden! Thse Guira Cuckoos look great and set in a fine composition, each bird sharply shown with fine natural colours against the light sky.
Well done and TFS!
Best regards,

Ciao Ana, fantastic group capture, great composition, splendid sharpness, fine details and wonderful natural colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi Ana,
what a sweet photo. I like these birds. Perfect point of view.
Thanks for sharing,

Hi Ana. Wow! What a busy picture. It looks more like a painting it is so interesting. Nicely framed with many subjects of interest. A work of art with wonderfully saturated colours. TFS Trevor

Hi Ana,

if going in the garden i came across these birds roosting on a tree waiting for me, probably i would feel like Tippi Hedren in Hitchcock's "The birds".They are a bit sinister.Despite the whitish sky this image is anyway pleasant.Seven cuckoos stand out well from the BG and create a beautiful composition.Sharpness is remarkable.



Hi Ana
First there was three and now there are seven. Very unique birds. You captured them with very nice warm light and placed them on a complimentary background. Super photo.
Thanks for sharing
Best regards

Wow, so many at one place, beautiful capture with fine lighting. tfs.

Hello Ana

By their looks and numbers they must have made quite a racket. Beautiful photo Ana, though I am little puzzled by the light. It seems to be lighting the birds well as well as creating quite a strong backlight. But you have managed it really well.
