Ciao Angelo,
Wonderful sharp and well-composed capture of the Collard Dove. I can't fault it!
Thanks, best wishes, Ivan

Molto nitida la tortora, bello il cielo.
Peccato per il filo elettrico...
'sto obiettivo modificato in casa vŕ veramente alla grande!

Ps: io e Giacomo stiamo proponendo le nostre foto con commenti in italiano per agevolare i connazionali, fornendo informazioni sui luoghi e le situazioni che ci hanno portato allo scatto, che ne dici di aderire?


Complimenti: perfetta!!!
Ma cosa intende Andrea con obiettivo modificato in casa?

Ciao, Emanuele

Good shot of this common species.

Good composition and sharpness.
