« ... Y a-t-il de la vie sur la lune ?
Peut-être pas, mais au Zoo de Granby, oui.
En voyant cette photo, je trouvais que l'arrière-plan avait l'air d'un endroit lunatique
et ces 2 oiseaux, mangeant à l'unisson, à des extra-terrestres... »

Superb in color and detail. I love the light shining in the crown feathers. It looks like a well-performed dance.

dancing on the moon...

Others already said what I wanted to say about this photo. It only remains me to say that my first impression was “WOW” and the first detail that took my eye was crown feathers on the birds’ colourful heads. Great photo, indeed!

@medam961: Puno hvala for your compliment, Medam!

Illuci from Hurdegaryp, Netherlands

I didn't know that bringing pets to the moon was allowed to the astronauts, but I suppose they are good life-searchers so fot this time they made an exemption :). BT the bird are beautiful, jewels among the birds! The grey environment enhances the effect (that's also why I chose dark grey as my blog color).

12 Feb 2008 2:58pm

@Illuci: Wat over vliegende Nederlanders in plaats van vogels? They are beautiful birds indeed, thank you for your comment,

Jean-Guy Archambault from Granby, Canada

Merci pour tous vos commentaires. Mais non, ce n'est pas de la neige: c'est du sable et la photo a été prise par une journée d'été et un soleil absolument plombant, d'où les fortes ombres. : )

12 Feb 2008 11:46pm

@Jean-Guy Archambault: « ... une journée d'été et un soleil absolument plombant... »

Shuttt !
Pas si fort, Jean-Guy, j'suis censé publier des photos d'hiver !

Par contre, je dois avouer
avoir plus le goût de ça que de neige...

akarui from Kagoshima, Japan

Efeectivement je ne sais pas ce que ces grues trouvent a manger la a part des cailloux pour digerer :) Tres jolis details sur leur huppe et plumage. Bonne composition, un poil trop serre sur l'oiseau de gauche et qui ne permet pas de tourner autour.

13 Feb 2008 1:35am

That's a fabulous capture and the shot is excellently composed!

13 Feb 2008 2:34am
