Thats a terrific moment you captured. Looks like he’s getting a scolding from his spouse Pushed to the corner, almost falling off the branch.(ha ha…)
The diagonal of the branch is very elegant.
This shot will win many more contests.

this shot is definitely great!
i hope someday i can make a shot like this with my gears…
Really great shot Edri. The colours have come out really nicely and you have managed an uncluttered background.
very good shot. it almost says it all. the colors are just great and the instant is just perfect. the feathers are in good focus and the background just blends in the right way.
Lovely shot; the focus is just right.
The interaction of the birds give an animated feel to this photo. The bland unobtrusive and uncluttered background against the bright colours of the birds adds a 3D look. Spot on or timing.
What a wonderful shot of these gorgeous birds!!! Their plumage is amazing!
Simple amazing! Great photo!
I love it – what a story it tells! The expression on the standing one is priceless – great capture technically as well!

Great picture. Wonderful colors, very sharp, great pose of both birds and great composition. I just don’t like the grayish and white bg a lot, but that’s all.
Very nice shot.
A delightful photo and weren`t you lucky to get that pose. Iguess you have a lot of patience. All the elements of a great photo are on show here.
Pretty vivid colors.
Wishing each other ” Good morning ” ? Lovely shot
Fantastic!! Probably one of the best bird photos that I’ve seen.
What a great capture you have here! One of the better bird photographs I have seen.
Edri, this is a fabulous shot, and I appreciate the great patience that must have been involved. I simply LOVE these birds. Very well done, very bright, colorful, very clear, and quite engaging!
Absolutely stunning! These are some of my favourite birds. I am a big fan of bird photography and I know the patience it takes to get the perfect shots… You captured the “life” of these beautiful creatures! Cudos to you!
This is Absolutely Beautiful!
I have a Collection of Bird Plates from Bradford Exchange,but this surpasses those in my Collection.
Next: Can you get this on a Plate?
You are truly a Gifted(&Patient) Photographer Edri.
Very, very nicely captured. I can’t help but imagine a caption;
‘WAZZAAAP?’ ‘You have got to be kidding me.’
Such a perfect moment, regardless of poor humour. XD
