  1. I adore this photo. Such a peaceful and colorful scene. I like how in this case it isn't zoomed in to the max. Posted 6 years ago
    1. Thanks! I was quite happy with this shot too, although I have to admit it was mostly luck. I was ill that day, and having camera troubles (camera kept not registering the lens), so I was more focused on those troubles and not really caring about composition.
      The good news is, I know exactly why I'm happy with the shot, and know I could replicate it in the future (assuming my camera comes back fixed).

      1. Good for you, hope you got well, and your camera as well. I like this "overview" style with the species and its habitat included. I'm personally often obsessed with getting as close as possible, so this is refreshing. Posted 6 years ago
  2. Wonderful shot, love the way you used the environment in the photo.
    Wonderful compositie with great light and colors. Looks like a fairytale!
