Many thanks to Pawel (cloud) for ID!.
On Thursday I was with my wife in Tatras. We started our trek from Palenica Bialczanska (about 980 m). After about two hours and 9 km we reached mountain chalet near Sea Eye Lake (1410m). There my wife were sunbathing and during this process :) I first went to Black Lake under Rysy peak (about 1580m). Then I returned to chalet and went again in other way. I reached 1704m - the highest altitude this year. Then together we returned to Palenica Bialczanska and after two hours returned home in Krakow.
Beautiful weather!!!
Thanks for visiting.

Hello Maciej,
Very happy to see this bird which I know well, being very present in our alpin forests. But I have to confess, I never succeeded to make a picture of it :-(. Very well taken shot with an intersting pose of the bird and a lovely natural background.
Happy Easter to you and your family!
Kind regards

Bonjour Maciej,
L'angle de prise de vue n'est pas excellent mais le sujet est relativement bien valorisé dans son environnement.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Ciao Maciej!
Ottima cattura, bella postura occhio ben visibile perfetta nitidezza e dettagli.
Grazie della condivisione.
Ciao Nico

hello Maciej
congratulations for the excellent photo, excellent POV, sharpness and color.
Thanks for sharing and Happy Easter

Hi Maciej,a great capture in a difficult position and light too,you work very well for an excellent result.Nice to see a bird in your gallery!Thanks for share,Happy Easter! Luciano.

Excelente trabajo ! con una gran profundidad y un enfoque magnífico;
El entorno muy acertado.
Yo también tenía la Canon 400 y siempre me dio muy buenos resultados,
aunque era una cámara "débil" en el sentido físico de la palabra ya que
hay que tener cuidado con los golpes y el agua :-)

Hallo Maciek
Beautiful bird, beautiful image that include the natural surrounding and beautiful composition and point of view. Just love the angle in which you captured this one showing the fine fluffy white feathers on its bottom. The sunlight in the scenery is just gorgeous. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Witaj Macieju!

Zdjecie przypomniało mi moją wizytę przy Morskim Oku - to podobno jedyne miejsce na świecie gdzie można bez trudu fotografować sympatyczne orzechówy na wolności
