Beautiful bird, the colors are so vivid and fresh! Excellent shot Su, one to be proud of too! Spot on! Click!!!
I'll say it's beautiful, and the light is just perfect Su. Excellent.
A very beautiful shot! Both the color and composition are great.
very beautiful bird. nice colours and detail. like the thick wire running through the shot
He looks really small on that wire, what fantastic colours he is
Good luck to you and Brenda
Lucky you lovely composition and a lovely bird
Great Orno shot.
Wish my dreams were like yours! Lovely...click
you have done extremely well to retain any detail with all that glassware. Well captured
Beautiful Su and very fitting to dedicate it to Brenda. A very beautiful bird indeed, gorgeous colours and beautifully composed. I wish you both a wonderful life together.
lovely shot and well composed, I've had many a bird turn there back on me too.
Beautiful colour on that plumage Su, nice presentation.
superb. well done to you another one of your list. sandyb
lovely shot good detail and colour .andy b
great capture. i agree, lovely coat.
PS who said dreams dont come true?
Yes, this is my favorite sunbird yet. The colour is fantastic. LOL - Maybe I'm being selfish, but I want to see a closeup of this one in portrait orientation!
Never seen anything like that in my travels before...beats the sparrows I tend to see daily.
Great composition and what an incredible coloured bird!
Well done Su....Congrats...
Congrats on the HC Su, well deserved! Spot on! Click!!!
Patrick, thanks for the thoughts on vertical crop. As is, the bird is a softie. Shot taken with a 1200mm combo (300mm + 2X + 2X), lots of glassware (child's play super tele quality) optical degradation quite evident. Don't know what to call it but if you take a look at the wire there seem to be a halo at the edges. Light convergence (if I am not mistaken) is quite bad. Bird is not more than 3inch, range 20 ft. That power cable is about 1/2-3/4 inch diameter. Considering all that I am quite pleased with the shot, and it's sentimental too
Thanks to everyone for your inputs as well. Very much appreciated.
Absolutely beautiful, colour background d.o.f
composition and detail beautiful lighting.
Congratulations on your HC.
Best Wishes Pauline.
I must say this is very good and a very cool bird.See,dreams do come true.
Great simple composition,
It looks a bit dark on my screen - is it a relatively dark bird or is it in shade?
Francis, thanks for taking your time and effort in commenting. It's a little black bird with stunning red running from the tail to head. Looks like a bad paint job
Regarding the brightness on different monitors, I am scratching my head still on how to arrive at an optimal setting. I am quite lost actually, but I do make comparisons between two types of monitors, LCD & CRT. Have to settle for something in between. Thanks again.
A most lovely shot that I've seen!
In fact I've seen it before!
Bird on a wire! :-p
Super shot - really like the colours and DOF.
