[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Birds are bipedal, warm-blooded, oviparous vertebrates characterized primarily by feathers, forelimbs modified as wings, and hollow bones.

Birds range in size from the tiny hummingbirds to the huge Ostrich and Emu. Depending on taxonomic viewpoint, there are about 8,80010,200 living bird species (plus about 120130 that have become extinct in the span of human history) in the world, making them the most diverse class of terrestrial vertebrates.

Birds feed on nectar, plants, seeds, insects, rodents, fish, carrion, or other birds. Most birds are diurnal, or active during the day. Some birds, such as the owls and nightjars, are nocturnal or crepuscular (active during twilight hours). Many birds migrate long distances to utilise optimum habitats (e.g., Arctic Tern) while others spend almost all their time at sea (e.g. the Wandering Albatross). Some, such as frigatebirds, stay aloft for days at a time, even sleeping on the wing.

Hi Dorota
Great impact made with this artistically done water scene of the Coot and his duck friend.
I just love the patterns created on the water surface.
Lovely composition, beautiful colours, good DOF and BG, and spot-on exposure.
Very well done. TFS.

To chyba pierwszy raz, kiedy odwiedzam Twoje PF. Piekne zdjecie ze wspanialymi barwami, chociaz byc moze ostrosc nie jest zbyt dobra. Bardzo podoba mi sie kompozycja i wzory na wodzie.
Wspanialego Roku 2007!
