A Northern Red Bishop, one of the bird species that can be easily seen in Senegal.
This one I saw in Bandia, a Nature Reserve not far from Dakar and the Petite Côte (Saly and M'bour), where it's possible to find many species of African animals.

la bellezza della foto sta nella sua incredibile semplicità: una macchia di rosso in un mare di verde dalle infinite sfumature mentre il ramo dell'albero con la sua nitidezza contro uno sfondo sfuocato assurge al ruolo di protagonista disegnando arabeschi nell'aria.
Eccellente composizione, semplice ed efficace nello stesso tempo.
Ciao e buona notte

This little bird is very striking, even though he takes up a small space in the frame, his color makes him stand out beautifully against the green backdrop. I love your work with the depth of field too!
All the best

Il ne sert certainement pas de sa robe rouge comme camouflage, car il ressort comme le nez au milieu du visage dans toute cette verdure. Je trouve la branche superbe.

lovely wild life photo. I like how the red bird contrasts with the green background pleasantly blurred. The tree branch adds a nice touch here with its very sharp endings.
Very well done,

I like the color contrast between red and greens but i find the bird too much centered in the composition which could have been justified if the right dark part of the image was very interesting, but it's not the case to my mind here ;)
Maybe a squared crop would do it ? Let's try ;)

The soft green background, the thorny branch as a diagonal, the red bird as the perfect colour accent. A marvellous picture!

This stunning red bird stands out beautifully against the green backdrop and the shallow DOF helps him to take center stage tremedousely even though he is rather small in the composition.
have a great day

A cracking shot of this brightly coloured handsome bird looks like a bird from another world! You have captured it so well, it's pin sharp focusing with such detail in the feathers and the vibrant blinding colours give tremendous impact. The shallow dof is just excellent, this stunning looking bird has the wow factor for sure and one to be proud of. This is delightful - the simplicity adds to it, Congrats

O colorido do pássaro chama mesmo a atenção, mesmo na miniatura da foto, o que dá um contraste muito bonito à imagem! Excelentes cores e um perfeito uso da profundidade de campo, com excelente nitidez! Belíssimo trabalho!

Linda tomada deste belíssimo pássaro. Aqui no Brasil temos um parecido que se chama Tiê-Sangue.

Fabulous red bird with black head, found in a green surrounding.
Excelent contrast, not only on green background, but also with the naked white branch it was sitting on.
Bom fim de semana,

What a beautiful combination of color in such an exotic scene from such an interesting tropical country as Senegal! You have chosen an excellent composition and camera settings to show the foreground clearly and the background vaguely. A highly aesthetic job!
