Wat voor een exotisch vogeltje! Ik kon imagineren dat er zijn enkele verhaaltjes over het.
Louis: Hah, niet zo heel exotisch hier bij ons smile
What a lovely scarf he is wearing.
Louis: It is lovely indeed, Mary.
He is rather a magnificent looking bird Louis
Louis: All sunbirds are lookers. Thanks Bill.
This all shows up so well against the white background.
Louis: Thanks Brian. The white background is the result of using the flash in bright daylight - sort of field depth replacement.
What a beauty Louis.
Louis: Thank you gutteridge

Very light yet intensive colours...
Louis: Thanks Frank. It is the result of using the flash in bright daylight - sort of field depth replacement.

Great shot, Louis!
Louis: Thanks a lot, Tom
it is a beautiful bird Louis... i relay like the way that you framed this image....petersmile
Louis: Thank you peter, glad you like it.
a fine, bright shot... interesting to read you used a flash...
Louis: Thanks Larry. The flash against a bright (daylight) background returns as a mostly white background. Bleached DOF.
Oh so beautiful! Lovely shot, Louis!
Louis: Thank you Elizabeth
