Hello Gerard
l'Africa è davvero un paese straordinario e con le tue foto ci fai apprezzare ancor di più la bellezza per dettagli e colori che riesci ad infondere nelle tue composizioni.

Bonjour Gérard,
Une très belle scène de la nature prise au bord de la rivière Chobe. Des animaux avec des attitudes très différentes, mais il suffit que l'un soit vigilant! Une très bonne gestion de la lumière et une parfaite netteté.
Bon dimanche
Amicalement

A wonderful beast captured well. Fine point of view and composition. A sight to behold for those uch as I who may never visit. Thank you for sharing a part of your gallery.

Hola Gerard

Bella composición de colores y formas, dos de ellas despreocupadas y la otra de vigilancia, y por cierto te ha visto. Preciosa imagen y un buen POV.

Un saludo de Antonio

Superb wildlife capture mon ami Gerard!
Great eye contact too.
TFS and have a nice night!
Cheers,

Bayram

Hello Gérard.
Three is always beautiful. Three always better than four or two in the frame.
This is a splendid shot of the three in different pose. Excellent details and fine framing.
Thanks and kind regards - Jusni

Bonjour Gerard,

Fantastic composition, one of your best shots from your South African trip. The animals are crystal clear (excellent focus / sharpness), you set the best exposure in the harsh lights and the "crown" is the pose (with eye contact) of the specimen on the middle. Unbelievable trio, captured on a professional way. Bravo. Although, I'm completely dissatisfied with the meaningless canvas, which doesn't help to enhance the contrast of the pic. Size is OK, but a black - white one would have been a better choice.

I wish a healthy and prosperous new year to you & your loved ones, friendly regards, László
