Hi Lotti,

Did you win the contest? This looks like a winner to me. These Avocets in flight are just beautiful. Great timing to capture them in such wonderful positions. Lovely colors, fine details, and superb reflections in the water.


Hallo Lotti
A beautiful, true to nature scenery and you have captured it with great skill. I just love the individual flying poses of both the birds, showing different detail on each. I also like the mirror effect in the water as well as the ripple of the water which is beautifully seen. Thanks for sharing and my best regards.
