Hola Ferran,
This species may not be threatened but it is the first time it is portrayed on TN: congratulations!
A fine capture, taken from a great POV with excellent sharpness against a pleasing neutral BG.
Thanks for sharing this beauty,

Very nice. Perhaps the best photo that I have ever seen of this not much photographed species.

Montseny - perhaps you know Lynx Edicions - I am a sometimes collaborator with their "Handbook of the Birds of the World" series. You might check it out before the early volumes start to go out of print. They are based there in Montseny (Bellaterra).

beautiful and majestic, TFS Ori

Hi Ferran,
Very good capture of this Rock Pratincole with good pose and composition, sharp details, good eye contact and natural BG.

Hello Ferran,
What a majestic pose of this unique species.
The first on TN and in a very good quality. I've seen more photos of this species, but this is the best.
The low POV is excellent. Evenso the sharpness and natural colours. Beautiful BG.

Hello Ferran !
Looking through your gallery, I found this wonderful picture - the bird is beautiful, I really like him with his black mask and white stripe at the back of the head. Excellent details on the feathers, wonderful natural colors, great pose of the birdn and a wonderful blurred BG. Very well done !
