[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Another upload (as yesterdays) of my visit to Vatmark Alhagen,I was standing on a small bridge when I was entertained by a show of this white wagtail,he was for quite some time catching the small flies which were near the waterborder,with his catch (mostly more than one) he stopped on a reed or on the bridge and ate them,I even made a few good shot when he landed on the bridge,but I found this shot more natural looking (although this one was taken a bit further (I estimate appro 12 meters distance),I hope you like it and have a nice weekend.

Hej Paul,
Great composition showing this little Wagtail with a mouthful on the crossed reeds. Great sharpness and very nice natural colours. Nice soft matching background too.
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Paul, I love the birds holding the flies on its beak. I also like the colors and the pOV. Very well done. TFS ganesh

Goedemorgen Paul,
Jaja en jij maar zeggen dat je ging voor de macrootjes :).....LOL
Volgens mij ben je meer vogeltjes als insecten tegen gekomen :)
Zeer fraai plaatje van deze kwikstaart. Erg mooie compo en zachte achtergrond.
Vind vooral ook de terugkerende bruine kleurtonen in zowel het riet als in de achtergrond erg fraai.
Prettig weekend gewenst, Harry

Hello Paul,
Fine capture of the White Wagtail from an interesting POV. The sharpness and details of its capture insects are astounding at the distance of 12 meters.
Excellent composition and BG.
TFS and best wishes, Ivan
