Amazing light and background..perfect timing to compose the frame with hint of grass in the bottom of the image adding some depth.
Nicely done Axel!

The fact that the wing angle mimics the angle of the grass makes the image, Axel. All of the other aspects of the image are spot-on, but the matching angle of the wing and grass is striking. Congrats.

Excellent pose and angle in the frame.... I think you brought down the whites more than you
needed to...

Brilliant shot, Axel! The pose, exquisite detail, colour, light and complementary lines are just perfection.
