[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hi all folks! I´ve been lost for a week and a half, with a lot of work, and testing my new camera, that I bougth to a partner of an Argentine web site, similar to TN. The camera is a Panasonic FZ50 and far better than my last Kodak easyshare c613. Has a 420 mm zoom and allows me now to photograph some birds of lagoon and rivers of my region; there are a lot of species living here. Surely not the best camera but enough to take interestin pics before I buy a proffesional one when I finish my house.
This pair of white-winged coot or gallareta chica in Argentina(Fulica leucoptera)was floating and feeding in Monte lagoon, near my town, bathed by sunset reddish light. Coots was 20 mts away or more, then I do a crop to make a more nice and interesting image.

I hope you like it. Thanks for viewing and comment!!!

Hola Hernan, me alegro de conincidir contigo por aqui, y me alegro doblemente al ver que por fin pudiste comprarte una camara que te permitirá sacarle mucho más partido a ese talento que tienes. Yo tambiénestoy acabando de rehabilitar mi nueva casa, y estoy muy contento de haberme podido escapar del piso a un entorno natural muy bonito.
Preciosos reflejos que conseguieste en esta toma, contrastando con la pareja de gallaretas, a las cuales incluso se le distinguen perfectamente los tonos de negros y pardos y esos ojos rojos.
Un saludo, Felipe.

Hi Hernan.
What a pleasant colouration of the image and calm scene at whole. Wonderful reflection of both birds and attractive mirror reflection in the water. My best regards and TFS.

Hola Hernan,
Light, colors, background, setting and reflections look beautiful. Gracias

Ciao Hernan,
bella cattura di questa coppia di folaghe, molto bella la luce calda e i riflessi sull'acqua delle colorate canne palustri, buona nitidezza.
