Sjoe, 'n baie mooi foto. Ek wens elke slag as ek in die KNP is dat ek die troupand so kan afneem, maar met my gesin in die motor was dit nog nooit moontlik nie. Pragtig vasgavang. Dis soos ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Magnum_za sê, net klein bietjie meer plek regs nodig om in te vlieg.

Stunner. Baie mooi Marna. Daai finger van jou was in sync met die voel se brein verseker. Alles gevries. Baie voel fotograwe sal se hul wil bietjie beweging sien in die vlerke etc etc etc.. Ek hou baie hiervan en in 'n FS het jy uitstekend gevaar. Net jammer dit is nie in die top 10 nie want ek voel dit moes gewees het. Enigste klein nit is die tak agter wat skynbaar ingaan by die voel. Dit is egter die wonder en frustrasie van natuurlike oomblikke.

Lovely, difficult LBR BiF shot, just at the right moment after take-off.
Seems a tad cool (blue) to me and he needs space to right to fly into. KNP?

While on the surface this looks like a GREAT photo, when I look closer, I can tell it is a stuffed bird. I'll forego why the actual bird looks fake but what sealed it for me is the little branch at the birds tail. I just know that you have the stuffed bird clipped to that branch.

While I feel there is a place for fakes on the site, I feel you shouldn't try to fake out the voter. I'm sorry but I can only give you a nine for this great nature shot. Had you going huh!

Wow, what a colorful bird!!! I have never seen this or heard of it before. Thank you so much for sharing. Not only is the bird gorgeous, but you did an excellent job in capturing it.
