sei stato bravo a riprenderlo senza che volasse via.
Bella scena in cui lo sfondo chiaro fa risaltare la sua sagoma.

Pozdrav, kod nas je velika vrucina.
Odlican trenutak, lepa ptica prelepih boja zatecena na metalnoj ogradi.
Sve je vise ptica u gradu, prostor im polako uzima covek svojom arhitekturom.
Dobar rad, lepa fotografija.
Prijatno popodne, Paja.

Found this in your random photos, and as you know, couldn't resist it !
Great capture and sharpness of this wonderful bird which you were so lucky to admire.
