Salve ragazzi, non so proprio come tradurre in italiano il nome di questa bellissima averla, fotografata quest'estate al Parco Nazionale di Etosha in Namibia.

Il nome scientifico Ŕ:

LANIARIUS ATROCOCCINEUS.

Mercoledý mattina potremmo andare all'Oasi di Valle Canal Novo a Marano Lagunare, chi viene?

Andrea

Hello Andrea,
very nicely captured this beautiful bird. Great focus and colours. Stands out nicely from the background. Perhaps just a bit to centred?
TFS, Ulla

Hi Andrea,
wow - very impressive bird with the red breast - also excellent sharpness.
Loos like a crow - I like it, thanks and greetings

Wow, Andrea. A new species for me.
Thanks for the introduction.
What amazingly rich colors and beautiful markings on this bird.
Great POV and sharp details. Excellent light and DOF.
TFS. : )

Superb shot Andrea!
Great DoF, very sharp and neat. Well composed.

Una nitida cattura Andrea con bel colorito e controllo della luce.


I like it a lot: composition, POV, DOF, focus, sharpness, color, lighting, background.

I like it: framing, notes.

I don't like it: nothing.

Un bel uccello molto bene ritratta.
Saluti... Ricardo

Hi Andrea,
A very nice shot on this Crimson-Breasted Shrike. The light was pretty bright here, but you managed it very well. The spot on exposure has rendered the colors and detail perfectly. Nice camera work.

Hi Andrea,
The stark contrast of the colour of the bird on the bland grass is very attractive.The bird stands out very well.The DOF confines the subject perfectly and the clarity and detail adds the finishing touches.Well done and see you again.
Regards, David

Hi Andrea, a nice image of this colourfull bird. Like Ulla said the composition would have been somewhat better of it was off-centered.
But great image anyhow, Jacob

l'importante non Ŕ la sottospecie, ma ...averla!

;-)

Hi Andrea

A nice low POV to show this pretty bird. Good saturation of colour. Clarity and sharpness are spot on. TFS.
