Ciao Luciano,
"cogli l'attimo!" o novello S. Francesco che parla e mette in posa gli amici animali, la tenevi nel cassetto per utilizzarla nella giusta occasione: bellissima immagine che parla da sola.
Tanti auguri di Buon Natale anche a te e ai tuoi familiari.
Ciao Maurizio

bonjour Luciano

Joyeux Noël à toi aussi, c'est une très belle photo de ce couple de Cygne
que tu nous présente formant ensemble la forme d'un coeur,
une très jolie carte de Noël, belle composition de cette photo,



Hi Luciano my friend,
Super love shot, the detail and colours are superb.
Best wishes for Cristmas.

Hello there Mr. Luciano,

Merry Christmas too!

Wow! This is really a wonderful shot, very lovely, captured in a perfect moment! Thank you so much for sharing! :-)
Best regards,


Ciao Luciano. Tanti auguri anche da qui. Ho provato il 105 per il mio post natalizio, la prima in assoluto e credo proprio che in primavera dovremmo vederci per discuterne...... Gran luce qui e ottimi colori. Sembrano quasi teneri queste due "furie". Ma osserva gli occhi....

Hi Luciano.
It is an amazing art picture. Bravo. Simply sweet subject and refined reproduction of two beautiful birds. Hanks a lot for wishes and all the best to you too.

Hello Luciano,

A great capture of this pair with lovely colors, sharpness & details. I think that Swans mate for life & one can see a "heart shape" between the heads/necks. TFS.

Merry Christmas & A Happy/Peaceful New Year to you & your family.


jejejejejejejejejejeje Luciano!!!
hai imparato anche l'arte di ammaestrare
i cigni?gran tempismo o botta di ciuelleo?
ricordati che puoi riciclarlo per San Valentino.....
Tanti auguri Lucianone per un sereno Natale con la tua famiglia sERGIO

Ciao Luciano, mamma mia che hai combinato!!!! Favolosi sti due cigni becco a becco uniti a formare un cuoricino, perfetta per san Valentino, ma che li hai ipnotizzati per farli mettere così in posa?

Hi Luciano,

You MUST repost this on Valentine's Day. The Swans are forming a perfect heart. A wonderful choice for your Christmas card because it is so special. If they could only spread this love throughout the world. Buon Natale!

Hello Lusiano,
I'm late for this wonderful capture but I hope you had a lovely Christmas! Fantastic timing showing these lovely Mute Swans displaying a big heart! Great sharpness too and lovely colours. Very well done!!
YFS and best wishes, Ulla

Hallo Luciano
Christmas came and Christmas past, but fortunately this very celestial image is still part of your portfolio for our utter admiration and appreciation. It is a pity I missed it at the time, but luckily one can return to leave a well deserved critique. These two Cygnis Olor's innocent and most precious pose in which you have captured them is the best example of the peace, love and goodwill that is supposed to be amongst us all, not only during the festive season, but always. This is a lovely image that speaks to the heart, and captured in great style.Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
