Hi Michael,
Nice lovely photo. Very good composition and sharpness details but a bit of digital noise.
Regards Jiri.

Hello Michael,
A pity that the photo is a bit noisy. These are Speckled Mousebirds, colius striatus.
Beautiful colours and good sharpness. Excellent composition.

鳥很可愛 真是美麗極了

Nice shot of these spectacled mousebirds. The noise is not so bad as to distract from the birds as the photo shows good depth of field.

Bonjour Michaël,
Agréable valorisation des sujets.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hallo Michael
These are such beautiful birds and you managed to capture two of them, where I really battle just to get one to sit still for a few seconds for a photograph. Although a bit noisy the image as a whole is great and beautiful to look at. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
