Hi all.
I saw that the former picture wasn't interesting enough, so I am uploading another version of this very little bird drinking/eating from an almond tree blossom.
I hope you will like this one.
Explanation on the bird is in the former post.

Yes Elroyie, very good shot. I like it more than the other one. Great job

Same for me. You still have the action, plus this one shows a better overall legibility on the bird. Also, the iridescent colors, though they are quite difficult to catch without being unpleasant, are beautiful here and leave space for showing feathers texture. Very well done, Elroyie.

Hi Elroyie, yes I like it.
Great colours in the plumage it's really shimmer. Great pose, composition and sharpness.
Very good work.

What a lovely shot Elroyie. The shimmering look on its feathers is really nice. Great to see a upside down shot like this. well done.

Hi Elroyie. For me the former picture was very interesting. This one is very nice too. The composition is more better with a diferent point of view. Good colours and sharpness in another great shot.

Hi Elroyie, this is a very good shot. What beautiful colours - so shiny and irridescent. Well captured on the branch. TFS.

I missed the first but this one is a stunner. Very sharp and the exposure is extremely difficult with the metallic, blacks and white. Perfect execution of it. Nice compo and BG too. Great shot!

Very good shot, great POV and composition.
Well done.

HI Elroyie
Good to have you back here - hope you stay a bit longer this time. TFS this nice flying jewel, they are a pain to expose correctly, and this one is a real little beauty, good exposure.
Sorry, I am so in debt, I take too long to re-comment.

Don't be so hasty, just because you don't get a lot of pooints doesn't mean we are not interested. You need to incorporate the number of views into the equation as well. In addition to TN members, many people from around the world view the material on this site. You will be surprised where you get emails from as time goes by.
This one is a nice shot too, good POV and DOF. Hard to get the exposure right on these guys, but you have doen a reasonable job. Its nice and sharp.
