    The colors and reflection caught my eye immediately ... but it is the playful nature of the bathing bird and water splashes that bring me back. Beautifully captured!

    Nice capture. Brilliant colored bird I must say. The frozen water droplets and reflection are a nice touch.

    Another fabulous shot. The colours are superb and the water droplets simply icing on the cake. It seems appropriate that I'm listening to Israel K as I write this. Nani, u'i, maika'i. If this isn't mmbin2 please take this as a compliment.

    I think I know whose this might belong to ;-) . Great timing and sharpness but would have preferred a crop that included the reflected wing tip. Colours look a bit too saturated on my screen. GL.

    Very nice composition and moment captured. The only thing that bothers me a little is the in my taste too generous sharpening and saturation

    the fast shutter speed has caught the flying droplets which add to the story

    The bird is a 'painted bunting'. This is a photo shot at Santa Clara Ranch in far south Texas from an underground blind about an hour before sunset. The bird is wet, hence the saturated colors.

    It is beautiful, a painting, or picture?

    It does look painted! Maybe a bit too saturated?

    I love the sense of action that you have captured. I am impressed with the sharpness of the 600mm kens. Wonderful vibrant colors - great job.

    Aside from obvious technical excellence, this is truly a splendid shot. Great choice of on subject level shooting, great colour, and seemingly a very difficult shot to obtain. High in my picks.
