[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Grazie alle precise indicazioni di Mario(mario-roberto su TN), grande conoscitore del luogo, ieri sera sono andato a colpo sicuro in Vallevecchia per fotografare i basettini.
Ne ho trovato un bel gruppetto (almeno 10), i maschi molto confidenti.
Questa foto non croppata e se avessi avuto un obiettivo pi corto forse sarebbe stato meglio.
Se andate... occhio alle nutrie!!!

Hello Andrea,
This shot is not perfect but as I know that these small birds are so difficult to photograph, I think this is an excellent attempt. Especially when you were so close to this Bearded Reedling that you didn't have to crop this shot. Being close to a small moving bird makes this an even better achievment!
Well done!
TFS, regards, Ivan

Hello Andrea,
A really great shot of the Bearded Tit, a bird that's been scarce in Sweden this year after the very cold winter. It is indeed hard to get a shot as it always hides among the reeds. Well done!
TFS, Ulla

Hi Andrea,

I really love all kinds of tits and this one has a special place among all of them because it can be seen in only particular places in Turkey.I haven't seen one yet but I hope I will someday.

This photo has, like all fast-moving bird photos, minor deficiences like obstacles in front of the subject or unsharpness.I had the same problems shooting long-tailed tit, too. But a good photo in overall.

Well Done & TFS.

Hi Andrea

Splendid shot of this very nice birdy :)
Excellent focus managed here, despite the very difficult FG branches and leaves. With all those, you manages a really beautiful crispy sharp subject. The exposure is i think very well managed and the natural colors and tones look lovely.

Bravo and TFS

Hello Andrea,

excellent colurs, Bg, POV DOF perfect details, very crisp, Nicle composed and capture photo,

TFS Kyle

caaaaaazzo, voglio anch'io il 400!

Hi Andrea

Congrats on an excellent shot. Well composed, good clear detail and nicely saturated colour. Great catchlight. :-)

Bellissima anche questa Andrea !

Direi che il 400 f4 stabilizzato si comporta egregiamente !
Mandaci anche una foto delle nutrie la prossima volta !

...se e quando riesci, prova a fare la luna ( magari quando piena di nuovo ).. sarei molto curioso di vedere cosa sa fare...Canon !!

Ciao e grazie,

ho cercato in ebay il prezzo del tuo nuovo 400mm... CCAAAZZZAARRUUOOLLAA !!! costa come una MOTO !!!

Hola Andrea
Como me gusta este ave, es una especie que no he visto todava y que me gustara ver y fotografiar.... pero de momento me consuelo con tu magnfica foto.
Mis felicitaciones.
