..... Szabo Jozsef ( joska ).

Dear colleagues I wish to dedicate this capture of a man, colleague and great photo of the TN.

We know all, at least virtually.

His name is Szabo Jozsef ( joska ).

The pictures, comments and contribution to TN and helped contribute to the development of our knowledge.

Staff wish to thank for all the help you gave me to.

Although the picture is not a 100% perfect ... I hope to like.

A few words about Common merganser:

The Common Merganser (North American) or Goosander (Eurasian) Mergus merganser is a large duck, of rivers and lakes of forested areas of Europe, northern and central Asia, and North America. It eats fish and nests in holes in trees.

It is 58-72 cm (29.7 in) long with a 78-97 cm (39.8 in) wingspan, and a weight of 0.9–2.1 kg; males average slightly larger than females but with some overlap. Like other species in the genus Mergus, it has a crest of longer head feathers, but these usually lie smoothly rounded behind the head, not normally forming an erect crest. Adult males in breeding plumage are easily distinguished, the body white with a variable salmon-pink tinge, the head black with an iridescent green gloss, the rump and tail grey, and the wings largely white on the inner half, black on the outer half. Females, and males in 'eclipse' (non-breeding plumage, July to October) are largely grey, with a reddish-brown head, white chin, and white secondary feathers on the wing. Juveniles (both sexes) are similar to adult females but also show a short black-edged white stripe between the eye and bill. The bill and legs are red to brownish-red, brightest on adult males, dullest on juveniles.

Hello Adrian,
A beautifully composed image of these two Merganser. The focus is tac sharp, showing us the wonderful detail of their gorgeous plumage. The exposure is perfect and the DOF achieved gives us excellent focus throughout the entire frame.

Lieber Adrian,
Diese Entenvögel sind nicht einfach zu fotografieren, wegen der weissleuchtenden Federn. Du hast hier ein sehr gefälliges Bild mit diesem Merganserduo gemacht. Interessant auch der gefrorene Teil de Wassers, auf dem eine Ente steht.
Herzlichen Dank für Deinen Besuch bei meinen Blumen. Ja, das Foto stammt aus dem Bot. Garten, den ich Euch gezeigt habe.
Was dein Irisbild betrifft, bin ich mir nicht sicher, ob es nicht verschwinden wird, da diese Blumen wahrscheinlich nicht wild sind.
Herzlich grüsst und einen schönen Tag wünscht Dir

Buna Adrian,
Frumoasa dedicatie, am remarcat ca in ultimul timp ai trecut la fotografie de animale salbatice. Pe un peisaj specific de iarna ai reusit un cadru placut care are culori naturale si detalii bune.
Numai bine,

Hello Adrian,

Très belle capture, beaux reflets avec au-delà encore de la glace.
J'aime les tons bleu-glacier de l'eau.
Magique, merci pour le partage.
Belle journée. Amicalement. Yolande
