Hi Alex,it's always nice to see a nature pic,and this is really great. A rare guest of this gallery,maybe the first time. A lovely capture with fine details and an excellent exposure too. Have a nice weekend and thanks,Luciano

Ola Alexandre,
An specie that is very associated with Brazil, saw only once in a zoo. But not as big as a 90 kg, like a small bear. Your photo shows a close range view upon, but did not mention if this was out in nature, nor captivity?
Bom fim de semana,

Hello Alexandre
Great picture of this couple of capybaras (waterzwijn in Dutch).
It is a lovely scene with the two looking over the water like human beings enjoying the panorama view.
Excellent work
Have a good Sunday, Groet Rob

Hello Alexandre,
Excellent photo of these two capybaras. You captured them with great sharpness and the blur of the foreground works well too. The light is excellent and this sunbathing couple must have thought so too.

Hello dear Alexandre and have a nice time
and a happy new day

Hello Alexandre
Interesting nature picture with nice composition and good sharpness.
Good work

Bonjour, cher Alexandre,
Eh bien, ce n'est pas moi qui irait leur faire une petite caresse, de peur de subir une morsure !
Ils sont vraiment impressionnants.
L'image est superbe et devrait figurer dans les livres de sciences.

já viajei muito pelo brasil, fui em cidades com parques com capivaras, já fui ao pantanal, já rodeei todinha a pampulha a pé, mas nunca vi uma capivara ao vivo. parece até mentira. bem bonita esta foto com os dois animais bem colocados e o verde ao redor. belo trabalho.

Hello Alexandre, Nice view of these two rodents. Cute animals. I have seen some in Ecuador. always great joy to see the animals in nature.
Have a nice Sunday

Maybe these creatures are common in your area but for me they are amazing and very interesting. You spotted them well in a good light and a nice environment.
Kind regards,

Hello Alexandre,
I've never seen these animals in real life.
Their size and weight are incredible. I'm not sure if I'd like to meet them somewhere in the wild :)
Good presentation in a very good composition.
Best regards, Paul

Hola Alexandre
Oh que c'est tout mignon, j'aime la prise de vue, la luminosité et les détails bien rendu, superbe image
belle journée

Olá Alexandre,
os famosos carrapatentos da Pampulha. Dizem render um bom churrasco! Bela foto.
Parabéns e Abraço,

Hello Alexandre,
Oh yes, I remember seeing these critters in the Pittsburgh Zoo. It is nice to see them in their natural habitat.

Hola Alexanndre,
Me gustan mucho los animales selvajes ! Entonces, estoy feliz de llegar a conocer a estos capibanas que non conocìa para nada.
Linda captura estrecha de la pareja cerca el lago.
El marco vegetal da una impresiòn de intimidad.
Gracias por compartir.
Saludos cordiales.

Hola Alexandre,

buena imagen de estos animales que aquí en Colombia se llaman chigüiros, es una composición interesante, captaste una bonita escena, bien visto,

Un saludo,


Hi Alexandre,
I have a Guinea pig at home for my little daughter....
Amazing wild life photography here. Nice framing with very much vegetation around which makes it feel as if taken from a secret hide.
Very exotic feeling.
Great work,

Hi Alexandre,

The animals are well placed in the frame. The point of view is showing the details of the Capybaras. Have a nice day.


Ah, os ratos gigantes. Esse aí ficou legal, com um bom embaçamento da grama à frente e do fundo com a lagoa. Excelente, bom trabalho! E bom fim de semana!
