[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
La Volpoca (Tadorna tadorna, Linnaeus 1758) è un uccello della famiglia degli Anatidae.
Le differenze tra le volpoche e le casarche sono, dal punto di vista strutturale, abbastanza insignificanti: il becco del maschio si distingue per una gobba che compare al tempo della propagazione e sparisce completamente dopo di essa, nonché per la maggior ampiezza della mascella superiore; le ali delle volpoche sono inoltre un po' più corte di quelle delle affini, e le loro zampe più piccole. Per quanto riguarda i colori del piumaggio, testa e collo sono di una lucente tonalità verde-scura, sulle spalle spiccano due grandi macchie nere, il centro del dorso, le copritrici delle ali, uno spazio sul petto, i lati del corpo e una parte delle remiganti sono d'un bianco abbagliante; mentre il centro del petto ed il ventre sono nero-grigi, un largo collare e le remiganti dell'omero rosso-cannella, il sottocoda gialliccio e le altre remiganti grigio-nere. La volpoca ha gli occhi di color bruno-noce scuro, il becco rosso-carminio e il piede carnicino; la sua lunghezza è di circa sessanta centimetri, la coda di dieci, le singole ali di trentacinque e l'apertura alare di novanta.

The Shelduck (Tadorna Tadorna, Linnaeus 1758) is a bird of the family Anatidae.
The differences between the shelducks and shelduck are, from a structural standpoint, quite insignificant: the beak of the male is distinguished by a hump that appears at the time of propagation and disappears completely after it, and for the greater length of the upper jaw; the wings of shelducks are also a bit 'shorter than those of similar, smaller and their legs. As for the colors of the plumage, head and neck are of a bright greenish-brown, shoulder stand two large black spots, the center of the back, the coverts of the wings, a space on the front, sides and part of the body the flight feathers are of a dazzling white, while the center of the chest and belly are black-gray, a large flight feathers of the humerus and the collar-red cinnamon, and other under-tail yellowish gray-black flight feathers. Sheldrake's eyes are dark walnut brown in color, the red beak and feet flesh-carmine, and its length is approximately two feet, the tail of ten, individual wings and a wingspan of thirty-five of ninety.

Hi Vanni.
Beautiful flight pattern captured against the spotless blue sky. The light catching on them is beautiful and the diagonal framing is so pleasing to my eyes. Nice work and thanks for sharing.
Regards,
Jusni

Dear Vanni

When I look at your gallery, I notice that birds are your passion. Here they are leaving, in a perfect formation, one depending of the other. A simple, yet beautiful image accompanied by an interesting text.

Kind regards

Ciao Vanni,all'inizio avevo pensato ad un fotomontaggio dello stesso uccello ripreso con una raffica come feci io tempo fa....invece vedo un gran bel gruppo in fila catturato con ottima nitidezza,stavolta la luce ti ha aiutato ed il risultato e' davvero originale e ben gestito.Buona giornata!

Bonjour Vanni,
Très belle diagonale s'opposant merveilleusement à l'arrière plan pour donner une publication très artistique.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
