Muy buena foto de este lapwing cuyos detalles y composicion son excelentes.
Muy buen fondo y colorido.
A unique bird the Tero is Hernan. I've never heard of this species before. I love his little tuft of feathers on the top of his head and his red eyes. A bit blurry but still a wonderful capture. Janice
Nice capture for such a cold day. It seems you were rather brave (or desperate) to be out on your bike at -3ºC. It is a wonder that the colour of this lapwing's legs still showed red and that it did not turn to blue.
The composition and colours are great. You must have had an amazingly sunny morning as f/16 at 1/500 seems like you had ample light to play with. You probably could have narrowed down on the aperture to somewhere in the region of f/5.6 which would have resulted in an even faster shutter speed and a nice out of focus BG. This bird is small enough for a DOF at f/5.6 to capture all the details, and you would have had the added advantage of a much sharper photo.
Anyway, good work and TFS.

Very nice capture.Red eyes are wonderful.I liked POV and composition also.TFS...:-)
What a beautiful bird, he has an amazing red eye. Nice colours and lovely warm light. I agree with Loot's advice, bigger aperture and faster shutter speed might have added something to this image. Nice work though and well done for cycling out at -3C to get this shot!

Hi Hernan, great shot with good colours, detail and lighting. A tad soft on focus but otherwise a great shot, I especially like the shadow on the ground. Well done and TFS.

It looks warmer in the picture than -3c. Nice quality eary morning light has given some beautiful colors and tones. nice detail in the plumage. I love their red eyes.

Good clear detail seen. Great color and exposure as well. Nice shadow cast. Well framed...
Well done and TFS!
Good picture of that strange bird! Colors looks so natural and you get a very good pov! Good composition too by having the shadow of the bird in the picture. In another hand, sharpness and details are not so good. Maybe next time :-)
Ciao and TFS,
