Erithacus rubecula (Linnaeus 1758)
European Robin
Rouge-gorge familier

Ordine Passeriformes
Famiglia Turdidae
Genere Erithacus

Erithacus rubecula
Appartiene alla famiglia Turdidae, ma alcuni autori lo classificano come appartenente alla famiglia Muscicapidae. Il pettirosso europeo è un piccolo uccello cantore molto comune. Ha aspetto paffuto ed è lungo circa 14 cm; il suo colore generale è marrone olivastro, con guance e petto di un arancione caratteristico e addome e sottocoda bianchi. Nella femmina il colore del petto è di un arancio più pallido Ai giovani manca la colorazione arancione e sono fortemente macchiettati. Frequenta anche zone limitrofe alle zone abitate ed ha un comportamento confidente rispetto all'uomo. Ha attitudini vivaci.
La specie è diffusa dalla Siberia al Nord Africa ed è presente in Italia tutto l'anno, insettivoro, migratore a breve raggio, territoriale anche durante lo svernamento. I maschi hanno un comportamento territoriale molto aggressivo, soprattutto nel periodo riproduttivo, per cui attaccano gli altri maschi che invadono il loro spazio vitale.
Per altre informazioni su nidificazione, alimentazione ecc. vedi altra immagine di: pettirosso

La fotografia
E’ stata scattata con il teleobiettivo 300 mm., con misurazione della luce spot, regolazione manuale del tempo e del diaframma (ISO 200). Se nel commentare la foto precedente avevo scritto “di un soggetto particolarmente confidente che si è lasciato avvicinare a poco più di 3 ml.” , in questo caso si è trattato di un pettirosso eccezionalmente confidente fino al punto di essersi accostato all’automobile dalla quale scattavo le fotografie ad una distanza così esigua da non riuscire più a metterlo a fuoco.

Hello Maurizio, a beautiful shot of this pretty robin with great details and POV. TFS.

Una toma fresca y limpia !!
Magnífuicos colores, enfoque y sobre todo un gran realismo. Angulo quizas algo cerrado pero de esta manera es muy impactante.
Un precioso trabajo Maurizio.

Hi Maurizio,
Fine details & interesting light, a great POV/pose.
Nicely composed, I like the way the robin is framed with the small branches here :)
Well done!
Howard

Hi Maurizio,
a very good picture with of the Robin with nice and natural colours.
Well composed with afine POV and I like the pose with the legs spread.
The sharpness are very good but pity the DOF is a bit shallow,
you had room for a smaller aperture like F8 , it had helped to get the right foot in focus.
But nevertheless it's wonderful picture.
Well done.

In a moment nice robin will be in my room. Fantastic 3D-shot. Outstanding, breathtaking reproduction of all tiniest details of the robin. BG is great. Tree branch pattern and delicate colour palette are so nice as main character. Bravo. My congratulations.

Hi Maurizio,
lovely shot of this cute bird. Well seen fluffy feathers in great clarity and attractive colours. well composed and presented in a very pleasant blurry background. I like the effect of the breanches it give to the pattern of the shot.

Bonjour Maurizio,
Tu te tournes à nouveau vers les oiseaux, les insectes se cachant par cette saison froide. L'oiseau le plus touchant est certainement le rouge-gorge, surtout quand il se met en boule lorsqu'il fait froid. Le tien a de plus l'air bien pensif! Belle lumière qui met en valeur son plumage.
Image bien touchante.
Un grand merci
Anne
