Hi Alptekin
Great capture of a lovely bird. The composition is superb and greatly complimented by the rich saturated colours. The DOF is great with excellent details on the bird and the trunk. BG is neutral and enhance the subject just beautifully.
Great work and TFS.

Breathtaking beauty!
Perfect. Outstanding.
Thank you, and best regards,

Hi Alptekin,
A beautiful little creature! I imagine if you asked a small child to colour in a bird this is what they might come up with :) Excellent shot. Detail, composition are spot-on, I love the warm saturated colours too.
