An excellent shot! These bee eaters are so colorful and pretty. Composition is good with the pair posing on a strategically located branch for nicely defocussed background. Thanks for sharing!

je trouve ce couple plein de couleurs magnifique.

Fantastique !!

Tout est parfait,la netteté et la pose des oiseau sur cette branche. Le Bg propre qui fait bien ressortir les couleurs de ces magnifiques oiseaux. Les sujets sont bien cadré et l'éclairage est parfaite. Vous avez réussi un petit chef d'euvre.


Merci Joseph.

Hi Aivar,
This is really an oustanding shot. The composition and framing are superb. The double catch of these two colorful birds is excellent, as is the detail. The OOF backround really makes them stand out well. A great job here!

Hi Aivar

Wow.... this is a stunning piece of work. Nicely composed, good use of light, lovely depth of colour with clear, sharp detail. Well done. TFS.

Awesome shot Aivar, very nice capture of these two with the top one looking in the distance loftily and the other attentively towards it. Quality is good too with sufficient detail. Colours are brilliant and stand out infront of the nicely blurred BG in neutral colours. Excellent!

Thank you, Aivar.
Sorry, I have no time these days to write complete comments.

Such beautiful colors and detail. I feel like they are right in front of me.

Great birds, colours, composition and details!
Nice work!

Excellent shot with good colour and lovely background. Well done

Excellent shot and exposure the lighting does justice to these beautiful birds.

The birds are Whitefronted Bee-eaters not Little Bee-eaters hence the reason why the description doesnt match!

Thanks though for this beautiful photo....

Hi Aivar,
Very nice shot.
Excellent colors and composition - i like it.

Hi Aivar,
