[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [Spanish]
This image I captured when some children fed the birds from one of the outer bounds of the reserve.

The birds's majority than appreciate him they are
gallaretas ( Fulica armillata ) existent at the place.

Also they appear any one picazo ducks ( males with with red peaks, published previously, and the females of brown color ), although these never have chances in front of another gluttons.

In spite of the recommendations of the fauna keeps them, an irresistible entertainment is for more young people.

The piece of bread in the air can be observed before being devoured by one of them.... I used a speed of 1/1000 to also obtain those details like the movement of the water.

Superbe photo de ces volatiles se chamaillant pour avoir à manger.
Belle prise en pleine action.
Bravo Ricardo.

They look like a close cousin to the Coot, great action shot Ricardo, really nice.

Very a moment for making this photograph, the group in full action, excellent of colours, good composition Ricardo!

You have to walk on water for your daily bread. :) You can see the intensity of the birds to get that bread. Great shot. Lovely moment. Thanx for sharing.

Excellent shot Ricardo. I love the action all over a piece of bread! Great detail, colour and light. Nice work.

Hi dear Ricardo!
Glad to see you here,with this admirable & great shot,well done!really beautiful,fine colors & a great composition.very nice,I like it alot,Ricardo!
(I like your great gallery,too,very attractive)

Very nice one, Ricardo, a good scene of "greed". Good details in the black plumage of the birds, and nice color contrast. Great capture, thanks for sharing.

These are Red-gartered Coots, one of 6 species found in S AM. This is a shot out of a rugby line-out, every one jumps for the ball. Nice action here, Ricardo.

Funny....and fighting....good sharpness and great action, never seen this scene as we have these "coots" in Holland too, nice seen and captured, Ricardo !

Beautifull action shot, Ricardo. I like the contrast between the yellow beaks and the dark bodies. Excellent!!

Fantastic light you captured here. Very well done to not overexposed the yellow parts of the birds. The waterdrops everywhere add a nice action feeling to the scene. Very well done.

They are thinking, "me, me, me, I want that food....."

What a neat image, and what interesting ducks! I love the stopped motion aspect of the image,as well as the interesting composition. Well done!

Very well catched, because for many of these birds, you show clearly these bird's expressive attitude, with the eyes fixed on the food. Very good action shot of a greedy team. Regarding identification: birds with white beak and white forehaed are Fulica atra (coot in english and foulque macroule in french). It's a very common bird in Europe. There is a different species on the left, with kind of duck beaks.

Foto molto bella e fatta molto bene. complimenti ciao gigicacco

Buena foto!!! En chile les llamamos Taguas. En el caso de tu foto, Tagua común.
