[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [Spanish]
The last day of July I visited a very shallow lake about to dry together with a friend (A. Ventas). We installed the hide on the muddy black-sulfurous shores very close to the water. When the sun was low the thin layer of water was magically painted in emerald green because the plants reflections. The small waves caused by the legs and beak of the bird broke the mirror and added a watery shine. This was an idilic instant portraying the habitat of the stilt.

Excellent nature shot with all of the good technical aspects: nice low POV, outstanding exposure, razor sharp details and nice eye glint, good DOF and nice composition!

Wonderful shot of this Stilt Carlos.
Sharpness, exposure and DOF are excellent.
Love the reflections and the circle on the water surface.
Beautiful details and catchlight in the eye.
Excellent work.
Thanks for sharing.
Best wishes,

Muy buenas Carlos
La verdad es que es un "jovenzuelo" muy guapo, me refiero a la cigu no se me piense otra cosa, tiene una nitidez asombrosa y ese agua es una pasada de guapa.
Un abrazo y gracias por el maquillaje, también queda mu pero que mu bien.

Hi Carlos, this is a beautiful sharp shot of this Stilt. You have amazing colour, not just of the bird but the water and bulrushes provide excellent colour as well. The detail on the bird is remarkable, and your composition perfect, you have him hunting with some room, and it looks like a drip just fell off and hit the water. Very nicely done.

Thanks, John

Un mes sin salir al campo, trabajando como un ca.....on, sin tiempo par poder disfrutar de las fotos. Tengo cinco minutos, me conecto y veo cosas como esta. Sois malos a rabiar. :-). Vaya pedazo de cigüeñuela, los reflejos son fantásticos, y encima con Adolfo. Vaya envidia (sana, pero envidia). Un fuerte abrazo.
