Grey-Hooded Kingfisher
Martin Pescatore Testagrigia
(Halcyon leucocephala)

E' sempre una bella esperienza quando puoi avvicinarti ad animali del genere senza che loro ti temano.
Ero dentro la macchina a pochi metri da questo Martin mentre lui cacciava tranquillo le sue cavallette.
Questa specie non legata all'acqua come quella nostra ma pi facile trovarlo in foresta.
La foto non croppata.
Ho usato il flash (canon 430ex) esp. -1 per non bruciare le parti chiare.

Hi Andrea
that's a lovely picture with great sharpness and nice BG, lovely posture and great catchlight in the eye.
IMHO I would put the bird even further to the right, but great picture anyway

uso maestrale del flash

come gi detto...l'importante si potersi avvicinare ma anche saper dove trovare gli animali

siamo a 3 buone su 5000...non male come media visto che la 3 foto pubblicata
