Hi everyone,
another bird from Danube Delta expedition.

Limosa limosa - Black-tailed Godwit
The Black-tailed Godwit is a spectacular wader, especially in summer when it has a red head and breast, as well as the distinctive black and white wing and tail pattern. At rest when the wing and tail markings are hidden, both Godwits resemble Curlews but have straighter beaks and in summer, reddish plumage. If plumage details aren't clear, the length of leg visible above the knee joint (which is really the ankle) is always longer on a Black-tail. Black-tails therefore look 'leggier'. In flight Black-tails have long trailing legs and long neck and bill as well as the striking black and white patterns on the wing and tail.

Excelent. Super moment, lumina, detalii, BG...
Asa rau imi pare ca nu am ajuns si eu prin delta...am auzit ca anu asta a fost super buna miscarea la migratie.

This is a nice sharp image of this Godwit, Parvulescu. I love the soft morning? light, the sheen on the water and the reflections.
Nice work.

Evelynn : )

Hi Parvulescu,
Nice shot.
I was puzzled about the tip of the beak being in the plant but you can distinguish it and yiou as a plus also the water reflection.

frumoasa imagine, frumoasa pasare. eu nu am avut ocazia sa ma pot apropia. dar or sa mai fi si alte dati :)
pacat ca ciocul este in planta aia, oricum reflexia din apa il scoate f bine.

Super faina reflexia,la fel culorile si detaliile.

Salut din nou, Lucian

Si asta e o splendoare. Lumina si atmosfera creata de aceasta sunt intr-adevar speciale aici iar tu ai reusit sa profiti la maximum de ele.
Imi plac detaliile super clare de pe pasare, reflexia superba de pe apa si culorile vii excelente.
Personal poate ca prefer poza si compozitia din Workshop, dar oricum ambele sunt exceptionale.
De unde ti-ai luat noul obiectiv? Se pare ca functioneaza super misto! Chiar...cat a fost?

Bravo si TFS

Sitarul tau a pornit-o in misiune speciala se pare, sau l-a deranjat putin aparatul tau si a preferat sa se retraga cu pasi precauti...

Foto=dexteritate (am mai folosit asta?)


Wow! Superb...
