Motacilla alba

Common and widespread resident, retreating from the north of Scotland in winter. The continental race (White Wagtail) is a regular passage migrant.
Occurs in a wide variety of open places including fields, farmyards, parks, meadows, and shows a preference to the vicinity of water. In winter large communual roosts gather in city centre trees or buildings or on industrial rooftops.
Unmistakable with its bold black, grey and white plumage and long, frequently wagged tail. Male (illustated) has black back, while females is slate grey. The continental race, White wagtail, is much greyer. 18cm (7")

This copy has been photographed in the reservoir natural of the Biviere di Gela. I have used a objective to mirrors. 500 milimeter 1: 180' 200 ISO

... Emilio, pubblica più spesso.
Bella questa foto anche se un po morbida.

Bella foto e presentazione.

Bella foto Emilio; so che non è facile da catturare perché si muove sempre e la messa a fuoco a terra non è cosa facile.

Complimenti, ciao, Emanuele
