Hello Maurizio,
Many thanks for this beautiful greeting showing a beautiful Kingfisher in a lovely pose. Great sharpness and wonderful colours of the plumage.
I wish you all the best for Christmas and the New Year too! Ulla

Impresionante trabajo Maurizio !!

Que belleza en esta composición y lo que van a disfrutar con él los amantes de las aves. Si el martín de la parte superior es casi perfecto, el plano bajo es de gran originalidad y mucha creatividad.

Buenas fiestas y feliz año para tí y los tuyos:

Hello Maurizio !
Great picture, I like this composition with the same message written in different languages - I see you didn't forget French ! :-) The picture in itself is great, of course, as usual on your pictures, with excellent sharpness and details, vivid colors, great POV and pose of the bird. I'm not sure if this one is Italion, but I wish you "Auguri di Buone Feste" !
Greetings from France,

Hi Maurizio,

This magnificent Kingfisher is perfect for a greeting card! He is perfect from the top of his head to his little claws. Pose, colors, details are all magnificent. I love the composition. A very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

hello Maurizio
What a delicate attention for all the people of the world, i like the composition with the branch who separate the shot in two parts, on the top part : summer colors and light, on the lower
part, snow and winter
Merry Christmas and happy new year too

Thanks and the same to you Maurizio!
I like your sharp shot of the Kingfisher and how you have 'framed' it with messages of the festive season, as well as the snow falling on the Egret and the Cormorant. Very well done!
All the best for 2009!

hello Maurizio thanks for showing this cute bird and happy new year for you too Regards Dany

hi Maurizio

Very impressive capture of the bird in full color and good clarity. I can see the sharp detail of the body in such bright light.

Your pp work effect is superb to make this attractive presentation with the multi-lingual text at the backdrop at the top, while the bottom part shows snowfall and birds on branches.

Good work.

Hello Maurizio,
Sorry, I missed this great holiday montage. Happy new year to You and Your family, too! A combination of excellent shots, great creative PP-work - maybe it violates the terms of TrekNature, but I truly hope the owners of the site won't delete it, because it's a fantastic creation, as fantastic as nature itself. Another masterpiece of You.
