[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
When I saw the fellow above on the ground, I started taking pictures. Meanwhile, I came to notice something was going wrong. Little by little, step by step, I was trying to get closer and closer. The bird, instead of trying to fly or to go away, remained still but frightened. As I had already taken many pictures, I decided to suddenly get close to it. The bird, instead of flying away, tried to move itself awkwardly. So I noticed it had been hurt.

But the story is not a sad one. The following day, I went back to the place in order to check how the bird was. One could easily notice it was much better. It was not flying yet, but was moving around from place to place much more easily. That’s why I do think it must be flying around somewhere right now.

Nice story, it reminds me the story of the little great tit chick that I founded, but there I don't know what hapenned to it.
good picture, I think that if you took a lower angle it would be better.

Good capture Livio with nice detail on the black plumage. The bird looks sad but I'm glad to hear that it seemed to recover. Good work.

Un beau spécimen Livio, tu as bien maitrisé le plumage noir. L'éclairage et les détails sont excellents.


Nice capture Livio,
Good exposure on the black, nicely detailed and great sharpness and colour.
Good notes, hope this little fellow is flying happily about now.
Thanks for posting

A beautiful capture in spite of the brilliant light and dark subject, Livio. Your subject does look as though there is something wrong, I wish the best for his recovery. Good composition and interesting note, thank you for sharing this with us.

Oh Livio, he does look poorly. Like a man with a cold! Dear fluffy bird, but I'm happy to read the end of the story - hopefull y he is off out there flying around. Good catch of the fluffed up feathers. Well shown.

It's a lucky bird Livio!
Lighting,details and composition are wonderful.
It's face seems very sad and I hope flies soon.

Nice shot Livio!
The bird really looks not very well. He has so sad eyes.
The photo is very good though it was probably hard to take it in so harsh sunlight. I agree that the lower angle could have been better, but this one isn't bad.
I like the photo very much.
Well done!

Hello Livio!
Wonderful shot and note.Very good composition.
Thanks for sharing.
