[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
L'otarda di Kori (ardeotis kori) è un 'uccelletto' di oltre 130 cm. molto comune nella savana Namibiana.
Spesso abbiamo incontrato gruppi familiari composti dai genitori e un piccolo.
Preferisce camminare e caccia insetti nel terreno, ma quando si alza in volo è impressionante! Sono enormi la sua apertura alare e la sua stazza. In effetti è uno degli uccelli 'volanti' più pesanti del mondo e può arrivare anche a 15 kg. (Gli struzzi sono molto più grandi e pesanti, ma non volano).

Buon week-end a tutti,

Hi Andrea,
Great shot, I know how difficult it is to get them. It is nice to see how the kori bustard moves through the field.
Nice composition.

Hi Andrea,
Being a bird enthusiast, I would be very pleased to have taken this sharp shot of this Cory Bustard with a wonderful habitat background. But I think the light was against you so I have tried the WS to see if I could improve it a little. I hope you don't mind.
Have a good weekend yourself!
TFS, regards, Ivan

azzz, angelo ha ragione!

mi spiace tanto per domani.

ciao, mario
