Hi Peter,
Beautiful portrait. Excellent composition, and everything else (sharpness, details etc.) is great here as well. Effective photo, beside the above I also love the water droplets, especially that one which is just falling into the water and leaves a miniature, temporary crater on the water surface... Perfect shot, congratulations!
Kind regards, László
PS: a little further to the west, in Ireland, this species is much less common. I've never seen any here, although I do much more birdwatching than I did at home in Hungary (where this species is frequent, nevertheless).

Hi Luciano,
Probably the smallest species, but you managed to capture the butterfly very well, with open-wing position. Sharpness and DoF are both great, and I also like the off-centered composition a lot. Excellent photo, congratulations!

Hi Sri,
Excellent capture, great eye contact with the "model" who's framed, at least from above, by the mesmerizing sunrise lights. A real African wildlife photo, wonderful!

Hi Silvio,
A little bit overexposured, but spectacular photo of a rare species. Nice DoF, and one of the rare occasions when the busy background isn't disturbing. Good shot.

Hi Sri,
Those few lightrays helped you making the photo fabulous - exceptional use of lights and shadows. The bird's pose is very spectacular, or I'd use the word funny as they tried to find the balance. Lovely composition and crop as well, nice image overall. Congratulations!

Hi Peter,
Excellent shot, as high quality one as Marius' photos about the same bird. Absolute perfect composition, good sharpness, and the background color is the most possibly suitable to the bird's vibrant ones on the plumage at all. Lovely light management and white balance. The photo of the day for me.
Kind regards from Ireland, László

Hi Asbed,
Congratulations for your new camera / lens - and of course to you for shooting this beautiful photo! Perfect sharpness, timing and composition. I don't know if a 135 mm lens is the ideal for bird photography, but this image became lovely. And the title is good as well. Thanks for sharing.
