Super bird portrait!
Wonderful capture with excellent details and very good focus.

Hello Bunyapon,

Great focus and pin sharp details in your feathered friend!
The bird gives a fine pose, and the blurry back enhances the subject nicely...
Good eye contact, and the yellow beak and legs are eye-catchers!

Hello Bungbing,
Beautiful photo of this Wattled Plover in great sharpness, details and very nice colours. Maybe the BG can be a bit more blurred. Taken from an excellent low POV in a very good composition.

Hello Bungbing,
A nicely composed shot of this pretty Wattled Plover. He is posing so nicely for you and showing his best side. The yellow wattle reminds me of a tear drop running down from his eyes.
The bright yellow legs, beak and wattle capture your attention immediately. The plumage otherwise would surely help camouflage him from predators. Wonderful detail and just the right exposure. Great work!!
