Saxicola torquata
SALTIMPALO.
Uccello dalla testa nera,nel maschio(Nella foto una femmina) emette acuti richiami dal tono di rimbrotto che risuonano come due pietre battute tra loro, frequenta le brughiere aperte dove si posa sulla cima dei cespugli prima di lanciarsi per catturare insetti sul terreno o talvolta in volo.
Nido:un approssimativo nido a coppa di materiale vegetale,imbottito e incastrato tra la vegetazione a livello del terreno o poco sopra.
Distribuzione: la maggior parte dell'Europa e del Medio Oriente e dell'Africa.
Alcune popolazioni migrano a sud in inverno

This is a very nice action shot with very good depth of field. I like the neutral background and the bright green and yellow of the moss on the branch. Well done.

Ciao Pier, carino l'uccellino con splendidi colori, bello l'effetto sfuocato delle ali, bravo, ciao Silvio

Hello Lucamarini,
Very cute and beautiful landing(?) shot you present here!
You've captured the very nice pose of this little friend, with excellent details and focusing.
Well presented and TFS,
Regards, Kevin
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!!

Ciao Pier,
Sono quasi tentato di crederlo un Whinchat. Le sopraciglia mi sembrano troppo prominente e lunghe, e gli orli dei wing coverts mi sembrano troppo aranciastri per essere torquata. Per˛, non ho una buona visione della base della coda - se proximolateralmente Ŕ bianco, sarebbe rubetra, altrimente torquata (rubicola). Lo hai da un'altra angolazione?

Hi Luca,

I like this picture very much, but try not to tally the bird in full center of the image. You could have made a square framing (by removing the left part of the photograph), and have thus increased the dynamics of the image.

regards

Fred

Hi Lucamarini.
I like your action shot so much. Very nice scene and great timing. I also like pleasant colour palette and excellent sharpness of the image. Only I have not understood how you have got so wide DOF using f2.8. Bravo and TFS. Excellent job.

Hi Luca,

Really nice, cute little bird spreading it's wings in the wintercold. My compliments for this magnificent shot.

regards,
Zeno.

Ciao Pierdamiano,
scatto molto bello e ben riuscito. Ottimo POV, nitidezza e colori.
Buon Natale.

Hi Lucamarini,
Colore grande, particolare ed esposto bene. Il piccolo uccello si leva in piedi bene fuori contro questo nevoso dalla prioritÓ bassa del fuoco mentre well..It deve agitarsi quelle ale da rimanere calde :)
Natale allegro!
Howard

Magico sfondo invernale, ottima posa.

Auguri anche a te.
