    Genial. Es una de esas fotos que sólo puede conseguir quien está en el sitio justo, en el momento justo.
    Su cabeza parece surgir de entre, la vegetación con la melena rojiza, para devorar a un intruso. Buen trabajo.

  30. rhys says:

    Made me laugh! A great candid moment. I've been thinking about doing more people/street photography of late, this has given me a bit more of a push- thanks.

  46. Andy says:

    HA what a great candid shot! I love all the green in the photo and how she is even wearing a green sweater! Nice work!

  47. Jonas says:

    One of the funny things is that she is wearing a green pull-over among green plants, as if her head was the flower of an ET plant :) Great find!

  58. marco's light opinion says:

    Wonderful moment, Ilan! Grotesque and ilarious, the aggressive gesture of her ctrongly contrasts with the innocence of the sorrounds (and also the colors!).
    Terrific shot, bravo.

  59. Spacefrog says:

    On aurait dit qu'elle se cachait derrière cette façade végétale. Mais c'est raté car le photographe était là. Bien vu en tout cas !

    Hmmm...suddenly, I'm very hungry. :D

  62. cuentosbrujos says:

    Magnifica toma, magnifico instante decisivo

    Nice capture. The expression is funny, and what's also funny is her sweater matches all the green in the plants and her hair matches a lot of the red pots.

  74. Michael Rawluk says:

    What amazing colour but I had to chuckle at this.

  75. Pacey says:

    Thanks for the visit Ilan. And I'm glad you did, coz I wouldn't have discovered your wonderful blog. I'll have to remember to vote later.
