welcome to treknature !
very beautiful first post and go on like this !

Welcome to TN Panos. Very nice flamingo landscape and reflections. The blurred foreground is a bit distracting and too present in my opinion.
I would like to see a close-up of one those flamingos with the reflection in the water.
Great first post.

Nice shot, colors, lights and dof are good.
but the foreground is too present.

Hi Panos
Welcome on TN - I hope to see more of you here, because you just dissapeared off the ether on TE.
This is a splendid post, love the landscape mode and the dainty ballerinas giving us a show!
I am a birder, but I love my cats as well!
Good to see you posting again.

I nearly passed this one by from the thumbnail. On opening I can see its such a great shot with the birds being nicely caught between focus. Yes the foreground does distract but its still a great shot. well done.

Very nice capture of these flamingos. The colors are great. A nice first post. Welcome to TrekNature.
