Impressive. Really impressive.
Besides photographer, this author speaks to the birds.
And it orders things as the one that is seeing now!
Impressive.
It is the same bird of the picture "Balancing Act."
Fantastic picture and very well done.
I learned that, among other things, pictures of birds need to show the shine of the eyes.
Are all seeing the shine in the eye of the bird?
Congratulations... This work is amazing... Example for all us... #4420225
