they are little cuties — so hard to get close to — dave
So…very beautiful! Goes straight into my favorites.
thanks again for the favorite — I like how the colors are so uniform between the dune and the bird – dave
ooooh I looooooooooooooooove this!!!!! Love the full size version … fabulous color … wonderful detail!!!!! OOOOOOOOO!!!!
thank you Lois – it was actually cold here this morning — about 52 degrees when I took this shot — maybe that is why he is all puffed up – dave
I think this is brilliant, although personally I would have poitioned him on the right hand side to give him space to look in to. great DOF and background
Hi Peter — thanks for the suggestion — let me try and see how it looks — I tried the landscape version – but wanted the sky in the shot — so nice of you to make the suggestion — I’ll let you know if I change it — dave
Hey Peter – I made a change and I like it better – I didnt really like the blur in the foreground either — thanks again — dave
What a sight David.. your work is superb!!
thanks Lina – I really like these little guys and they so live up to their name — dave
Brilliant capture indeed Dave!
Ah, lovely capture, great DOF
thanks Paulette — had to take from the car window parked in the dunes — they are really quite shy — dave
Beautiful. Great color, DOF and details. Thanks for sharing this image with the Art of the Middle East group.
thanks Eyal – I do like the color of this one — straight out of the camera — I have a few shots of Abu Dhabi I may add in the next couple of days.
What great texture and dof in this. The background makes this a really stunning shot.
thanks Chris — I have taken quite a few shots of this species — first one that I really liked — dave
