[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
It has been raining for two days and they are preening and grooming each other to get up to standard. I have not seen them right here before and maybe they have a nest in the vicinity. Unfortunately I do not know their correct identity.

Good timing and well collected the details.


Good shot of the two. Focus is spot on and you can see all the detail in the feathers. Even a catch light in the eyes!! DOF and light were well handled.
The birds are Black-eyed Bulbul (of Tiptol in Afrikaans).


A very beautiful capture. It is the " Dark-capped Bulbul. They stay in the eastern half of South Africa. The liquid call is often heard in gardens. A restless bird who likes to sit in trees to sing. Forages mostly in trees. Eat fruit, nectar and insects.

Hi Neels,
As mentioned it is your Bulbuls and they can also be very noisy and aggressive towards other birds. A great capture with good sharpness and fantastic natural colors.

They know each-other so well... also their portrait is simply stunning without or with identity-card another great wild life poster well done NEELS GUNTER

Hey Neels, great moment captured by a professional photographer. I do like the birds represented with good details. Well Done.

Hi, Neels. This is a lovely photograph of the birds. Well seen and captured with excellent exposure, with catch light in the eyes. I must admit it have to be lucky in order to get these intimate photos. Thanks for sharing.

Hello Neels! Amazing pair. Fantastic lovers. Superb scene on the wire. Fine background. Excellent focus effect. Regards!

Hi Neels

A well timed shot. Nice details and catchlight in the eyes. I would liked the bg a little more blurry. But still a nice shot.



Lovely scene with a harmonious bg.
These two birds are like two musical notes, there is the beginning of a sonata ... like the Sonata No. 5 "Spring" by Beethoven.
Very nice result and lighting.

Excellent timing to capture this moment. Excellent details and sharpness. TFS
