Peek-a-boo!
Lens: DA*50-135mm Camera: K-5 Photo Location: Los Haitises National Park, Dominican Republic 

Shot this little guy while going through a large mangrove in a small motorboat. The Dominican Republic has some beautiful spots! I was trying to strike a balance between keeping him as the subject, but still keeping a feel for how twisted and awesome the mangrove was.

Very nice. I like wildlife images that include a good amount of the environment for context.

Overall a lovely shot.

I would suggest more shadow detail thus bringing the bird out more.....

Thanks for the suggestion I don't think I like him that exposed, but perhaps a bit more shadow detail. I like that he is lurking in the shadow and trying not to be seen.

Great composition, agree with the last comment, a bit more shadow detail would make the bird more visible while keeping the overall feel of the photo, the little vignetting, very nice. Also agree with Luftfluss about the framing (what can I say, I'm in a agreeable mood today). taking a photo like this would make me smile for a couple off days, thumbs up from Holland.
