    Rollers

    My first attempt for the season. I have also uploaded it in my album.
    Comments are welcome.

    The vividness and clarity of both images is wonderful. I also think these represent examples of perfect sharpening. If others don't agree, please say, because I may not be right.

    Beautiful Piet,

    Are they for real?

    That's not really a serious question - I've just never seen anything like them before.

    Cheers,

    Great shots Piet. I have tried and tried to capture these lovely birds but the light was never right. You have managed to get them with all their colour on display. Well done.

    Thanks Donald.

    I think one must never under estimate the importance of nailing the focus, steadiness and good light - as some one once said: Light is everthing

    Dave & Peter

    Thanks for the compliments.

    In my album there is a photo of the purple roller which is also a very colourful bird.
