bonjour a tous.
lors de la publication de ma 300eme j'esperais faire mieux,et bien je crois que c'est fait.
ce martin pecheur d'europe a été photographié hier avec mon 400mm canon et le TC1.4 kenko.photo prise avec mon affut flottant,c'est fabuleux de pourvoir approcher autant.cette photo est recadrée et prise a environ 10 metres mais j'en ai d'autres que j'ai faite en fin de journée ou je ne suis plus qu'a 4 metres de l'oiseau et il est plein cadre.
bon week-end.

Hello all.
at the publication of my 300eme I hoped to do better, and I think it's done.
this Common Kingfisher was photographed yesterday with my 400mm canon and TC1.4 kenko.
photo taken with my floating blind, is fabulous for approaching autant.cette photo is cropped and has taken about 10 metres but I to have others that I made at the end of the day or I am no longer that 4 metres of the bird and it is full-frame.
good weekend.

Meraviglioso ritratto di martin pescatore, la 300th immagine non era stata così fortunata, ma spesso la fortuna arriva dopo averla cercata, ma non sempre in coincidenza con le "celebrazioni", eccellenti POV e DOF, bellissima composizione con le soffici piume e il martin pescatore in fase di riposo (oggi l'ho fotografato anch'io in analoga situazione, ma a circa 13 metri e con il solo 300), straordinaria definizione dei dettagli, fantastici i colori. Grazie e complimenti. Ciao Maurizio

Hello Laurent, this looks like it was a windy day - the breast feathers of this beautiful Kingfisher are fluffing out nicely in the wind.
The colours are great, and your details are spot on. It makes me think it might be a young Kingfisher
Well done
