RuthC: What a beautiful capture, Arijit Banerjee, of a Rhesus macaque, and it deserves a top place in this challenge. Beautiful details in the monkey's coat with each hair clearly delineated, and the tiny drops of water spraying off the fur. Great colours and contrast between the subject and the soft green bokeh background. Ruth :-)
Thank You RuthC. That you liked it is an award in itself.regards.Arijit
A nice review thanks. I always thought that the 7D MKII is a better body for a wildlife photographer, but the I am nor Canon expert.
One thing I noticed in the Kildeer (Bird) image. The detail is much much less than I expected. It could have been the lens, the body or even the moment.
At least people have an option. This lens has become quite popular here in India.
Terrific work mrp! Way to go!
I love this color combo!
I am primarily a birder. The K5 has held me in good stead, even in low light. I really look forward to the review covering the sensor of K5IIs being tested in real life (along with studio samples) - covering subjects of interest to wildlife photographers - birds and nature macros to be specific.
Photographing chicks is totally against birding ethics. I am not voting on this.
:-( noticed this too late!!!
The clothes clip!!!!!! That just had to be in!
RuthC: What a great shot! Congratulations, Arijit on capturing it! There is such an interesting story there. (By the way, what did happen? Surely you didn't just walk away!) Ruth :-)
Thanks Ruth. The Butterfly flew off but was snared by a Bee-eater. From one danger to another... that is nature.
Wo! Thanks to all those who voted.
A lovely image. Totally deserving.
Thanks The MicK
This is indeed a lovely shot! Absolutely deserving. Well done my friend.
Thanks everyone. vgabor- appreciate those encouraging words.
Excellent and deserving entry!
Deserving, to say the least!
Deserving indeed! Congrats.
Greyser: Very good capture with shore line background. Congratulations, Arijit.
Glad you liked it Greyser.
RuthC: I really loved this entry! I've seen this situation before, when the poor dog came off second-best! LOL! Congratulations on a very expressive photo.
That was very kind of you Ruth. Thank you.
Deserving winner! Well done & congrats.
