La fotografia
E’ stata scattata da capanno nell’Oasi di Gaggio. Si tratta di un giovane di nitticora, nato quest’anno, che si destreggia già bene nel volo. Le prime sperimentazioni ed esercitazioni di volo avvengono rimanendo nei pressi del nido. Il giovane di nitticora ha un piumaggio di tipo mimetico marrone-beige con macchie chiare a goccia e chiazze chiare più ampie nella parte inferiore (vedi WORKSHOP per ulteriori particolari). Un’altra vistosa differenza rispetto al giovane sub-adulto è l’occhio con l’iride gialla e non rossa.
Questa immagine è anche un omaggio a goldyrs che con tanta passione ed amore documenta su TN la natura e gli animali del proprio territorio.

Hallo Maurizio
Brilliant shot of this very super looking Night Heron, stunning detail in the plumage. Lovely pose, well framed, exposure is spot-on. I just like that round yellowish eye and that sharp edged beak. Good presentation from the lens of an excellent photographer. Thanks for sharing. It was most enjoyable to look at. Have a lovely weekend.
Kind regards
Anna

Hi Maurizio,
Wonderful shot of the night heron, great semi-diagonal composition, sharp where it counts, and blurry where it needs (background). Really masterful, with great warm color tones. Bravo.
Ciao e grazie, László

Hi Maurizio,

Your pictures are stunning, Maurizio. When I think I had not visited your gallery before... this one is beautiful because of the light, you seem to bring a lot of care in your pictures regarding light. It is soft and golden, bringing out the bird perfectly, the background is flattering and smooth and the nice composition with the diagonal branch in the frame adds to the whole. Beautiful work, thank you,

Very good lighting conditions. I like the green background to enhance this heron's details.

Your post (including three wonderful shots) is simply great. I like it a lot. Pictured scene (original shot) is simple and so amazing. Superb sharpness, exposure and details of the heron and twig. Wonderful reproduction of colorful water surface. Perfect work. My compliments.

Gracias Maurizio por tu deportividad. España creo que lo ha merecido , pero ya ves que el fútbol casi siempre es injusto: Italia nos puso en más apuros y sin embargo quedó fuera; Alemania, excepto en unas subidas excelentes no hizo nada! Fútbol ... jajaja.
Veo que sigues con tus buenos trabajos como nos muestras en esta bella imágen, donde como siempre, el encuadre es superior y los colores respetan la realidad. Bien captado el entorno. Tu galería sigue siendo de lo mejor.

Sorry for getting back to you a little late.
This is the most outstanding image from your camera.
It is perfection incarnate in terms of sharpness, colours and composition.
You deserve to be congratualted for creating this masterpiece.
Warm regards,

Hi Maurizio,
What an impressive wait by this one to catch its prey...superb espeically that eye..

I have been looking at the other shots in your gallery.You have an eye for the catchy compositions and they come through excellently.I love this one for the clarity and spot on focus you have got.I wonder how close were you to the bird.The shot looks like very real exhibiting the wait of the bird in every way with the slightly outstretched neck and an attentive eye suggesting its eager wait for the right prey to show up.

The lighting is perhaps the best thing i like about the shot.It seems to highlight the yellow buttoney eye and creates a wonderful mood in the composition.

I am glad you liked the workshop.It is just a way to learn for myself.

TFS & Cheers
P.S:Was it able to get a prey for itself finally?

Hi Maurizio,
Very nice shot. I like it.
Great details, sharp and colors.
Well done!
