Hermoso retrato de este White Wagtail. La fotografía es extraña, el pájaro parece extraído de otra atmósfera, de otra luz, sobre el fondo grisáceo y húmedo, confiriéndole a la obra un aire mágico. Felicitaciones, Les.

Desde Argentina,

Beautiful portrait of this White Wagtail. Photography is strange, the bird seems taken from another atmosphere, another light, on the background gray and wet, giving the work a magical air. Congratulations, Les.

Hello Les,
The White Wagtail is such a beautifully marked bird which your lens has captured very well. I love it's attractive plumage, especially the white face and black cap. It's slate gray body and brown wings trimmed in a bit of white makes it a pretty sight indeed. Great job!!

No doubt a beautiful specie and excellent capture.I like its details and beautiful POV.Nice colour and sharpness.Fore ground's details are attractive too.

Regards and have a nice Sunday,
