[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I really like these long lasting days of June in the south of Spain, when you can shot at 21 h or even at 22 h. I can carry my camera to work and going to the field at the end of the day. This was the case of the meeting with this partridge, the red partridge native of Southwestern Europe. A common game trophy, but really a colourfull and beautiful species. The sun was low and painted with warm hues the plants and the bird. It was safely hidden among shrubs and weeds, but at times it raised the head looking for me... Are you still there? Why not better going home and watch TV as other humans?

I am very sorry, partridge, click, click. Bye and thanks.

A ver si hablamos un ratejo o dos.....

Hola Carlos,
Fine capture of a Red-legged Partridge in the evening light. Great pose, sharpness and colour.
I might have cropped away the yello w on the left, which would be better even though it causes a square picture. Even so, its a nice shot.
TFS, Regards, Ivan

Very nice perspective Carlos. I like the fact that the bird is only partially visible and right centered. The overall colors and lighting is also very well rendered.

Hi Carlos
I like these pictures with some vegetation in the foreground.
Great light, wonderfull catchlight and perfect sharpness makes it a real great picture

Hola Carlos,
Una foto que está mortal! Me gusta como se asoma de su escondite de ramas y hojas. El colorido y composición son majestuosos. Te felicito

Hola carlos, he traducido con el altavista y mejor me imagino lo que has puesto que lo que he leido. :-). Una foto preciosa de la perdiz, con ese entorno florido fantástico y la mirada a cámara. Una preciosidad. Un saludo.
