House Martin (Delichon urbica)
Italian name: Balestruccio
Photo: a young bird.

A House Martin is easily identified by its obvious rectangular white rump, not found on either Swallows or Sand Martins. It can be distinguished from Red-rumped Swallow by its squarer tail and whiter underparts and face.
Breeds in towns and villages and on farm buildings, bridges and occasionally cliffs.
Widespread and numerous in most of Europe.
More than ten million breeding pairs across most of Europe.

fa voglia d'accarezzarlo

Hi Angelo,
The details are nice, clear and sharp.
superb colours, lighting and exposure. The POV is good and the shallow DOF works really well in this shot.
Well composed and a very cute model.
Thanks for posting, have a great end to the week.

Bel ritratto, quasi una macro!
Un'occhione lucido da POKEMON !!
Bella anche la foto nella tua pagina iniziale, sembri RAMBO !!


Bello scatto. Grande nitidezza. Manca la naturalezza del soggetto. Comunque bela lo stesso. gran colpo di fortuna.
