Fantastic shot, very well detailed and composed. Lovely picture
showing the mother care for its eggs. Well done
Hi Ivan. You were able to get a good close up of the Black-winged Stilt with its eggs. Being so close lets us see all the markings on the four eggs. You have captured the feathers with fine detail and all with natural colours. Would it have helped if you have taken the 1.4 converter off. To put the bird just a tad further away. Well done TFS.

Well, this is pure nature at its best Ivan, the brightly coloured Stilt and the perfectly camouflaged eggs form a good counterpoint in this finely exposed and sharply focused image taken from the best possible vantage point. The second image and your concise notes complete this posting superbly, TFS them my friend.

This is one of those once in a lifetime shots. I am so glad you captured this stilt so perfectly. If any of the wing is missing it isn't noticeable. I'm not sure which I find more exciting - the bird, the nest, or the eggs. I've never seen such a clear view of bird's eggs before. Pose, colors, details are all marvelous. When I had my S5 I can't tell you how many times the converter was on when I didn't want it and it wasn't on when I needed it and no time to correct the situation.

As I mentioned yesterday, your holiday seems to have gone off very well,my dear friend Ivan.
I love the really close distance(I know there's some technical jargon for that)that you've got here.
The clarity and depth that has brought to this shot is really amazing!

Wow, Ivan... What a great intimate shot of this stilt tending its eggs.
The nest is so precarious at the edge of the water.
Very sharp details... and the white is nicely balanced.
Our stilts look a little different, as we have the black-necked type.
I wonder if ours have similar eggs and nests.
TFS. : )

It's like a window open on the intimacy of this couple. Amazing to see the posture of the female preparing the disposition of the eggs to brood them.
You had a perfect point of view to show us this most interesting moment.
Excellent and so natural!
Un grand merci
Meilleures salutations à vous deux

I agree, a hide is the way to go with birds, when possible. A fine shot, excellent detail and sharpness, and I like that the bird is going about its daily routine rather than just posing.

Now thats a hide with a view.
You couldn't get any closer could you?
Ecellent detail on those eggses.
Great capture of the Stilt turning her eggs.
Cheers & TFS

Simply outstanding in every aspect shot. I am impressed with achieved 3D-effect, fantastic sharpness and details of the scene and precise exposure. Magnification level is unbelievable (I feel myself in the nest too). Diagonal composition of the image is also perfect. Great true wild nature bird shot. My congratulations.
