So beautiful Sylvia - the colours and detail & dof is spot on and showing the natural habitat very well, they are difficult to spot and blend in perfectly with their environment - Ina

Superb shot of the Bunting Sylvia. Your POV and exposure has worked well in making him stand out clear of the BG. I feel this is even better than yesterdays pair.

Can't help feeling Sylvia, that -1/3rd might have kept the whites in check moreSmile

Having said that, I wasn't there and the conditions could have been changing like the weather (excuse the pun)Tongue
