Nitticora (Nycticorax nycticorax)

Ho osservato, all' Oasi delle cave di Gaggio la laboriosa pulitura dell piume:
le passa con il becco "una per una".

Hi Franco,

All the attention is drawn to the red eye. Magnificent!
Somehow I find this a very intimate capture. Nice colors too.


Hola Franco
Preciosa foto de martinete, bien compuesta y con unos colores muy bonitos.
Un saludo

Ciao Franco,
Nel mio italiano de Babel;-). Lo gradisco molto. Luce bella molto. Ho fotografato il nycticorax io stesso. Eccellente!
Ma nome del mio heron è un Bubulcus Ibis. Non pensate? È le informazioni del giardino zoologico e mi sono convinto che era come quello. Siete un teatro dell'italiano della punta;-)?
