[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Agapornis roseicollis:
Small, colourfull birds flying very fast. While flying you always hear their sreeching calls. When sitting in a tree they are usually dificult to detect, but here they seem like fruits in a fruit-tree.

Hello Pierre
Very impressive photo with very good composition, wonderful colours and great sharpness. Beautiful birds!!

Hi Pierre my neighbour today,
very nice composition of these birds. Amazing colours. Perfect sharpness. Suitable background.
Thanks for sharing.

great qaurtet, TFS Ori

Hi Pierre,
The colours and sharpness are wonderful but....compositionwise this is a masterpiece!!! The ones facing the camera all look in the same direction and the one with his back towards the camera faces the other way. One could get philosophical about it :) The branches and leaves enhance the beauty of the image. Very well done indeed!!!

I like the composition here -- it shows that non-standard crops and sizes are sometimes necessary for an attractive image
