Nice! Lovely focus on the bird with all that greenery behind.
If you are shooting in Algarve there is a river in Armacao de Pera full of amazing wildlife when the tide is out. You go to the fisherman beacg, walk to the left of the beach and you'll come across the river. Early morning is best when they start to feed. Grin
