Hi Hernan,
Wonderful shot of this great looking Flycatcher on the barbed wire with a fine BG. Very neat and sharp image and you have handled the natural lighting pretty well. Excellent POV, DOF and composition.

Hello Hernán,
Wonderful capture of this spectacular species, the Fork-tailed Flycatcher. The POV on the barbed wire is just right and the sharpness against a the OOF natral green BG makes it stand out in this fine composition.
A great shot and thanks for sharing it!
Greetings from a cold Sweden,

Hi Hernan,
It is hard to imagine that with that kind of tail this Flycatcher would catch any flies. Great POV, pose and composition, sharp details and natural BG.

Oh, you're very lucky to see them and your capture is simply superb! what graceful bird, Hernan, and I like the composition with the nice blurred field with the white flowers, the wire where the bird stands to show up its beautiful tail. Superb and thank you!


Hello Hernan,

Lovely capture of this beautiful bird. Nice composition with the flowers in the background. Good focus and beautiful colours.

Hi Hernan.
You managed to catch so elegant and beautiful bird. Great POV and composition of the image which show all charming details and features of the bird. Pleasant green smooth BG is superb supplementation for the subject. Sharpness is crisp. Bravo.
