The contrast on this picture is great and the blurry BG & FG gives a magic touch to the picture.

Obrigado

Hello Paulo,
well hidden in dense vegetation, that bird has been caught by a sharp eye. Focus spot-on, composition well balanced. Iconic pose, perfectly captured. Imbedded in blurred foreground and background, the bird looks like an actor in a world of pure imagination.
Congratulations to your 200th!
Thank you! Best regards,
Peter
