White-throated Dipper (juvenile)
or European Dipper
(Cinclus cinclus)

This young dipper was standing on a rock calling fo food.
Later its parent will arrive with some good insects.
I took this pic (like the other one in my gallery) at Triglav National Park in Slovenija.
This park is home of the higest mountain of Slovenia, its name means: 3 peaks.
This mountain appears also in the National Flag.

Adrea hi, nice shot again, the last adult dipper was cool, i think it was standing on the same rock. Its great to follow birds through the cycle of producing young, nice and sharp, i love my Sigma 500mm. be cool :-) TFS

Hi Andrea,
Funny scenery well captured, and you put a smile on my face this fine morning!
I like the lines, and the composition is well done...
Good clarity in colours, and pleasant details in the bird!

Félicitations pour cette magnifique image,l'action du petit est superbe et l'environnement est très joli.

Hi Andrea,

Very good capture.
Excellent colors, sharp, details and time.
Well done!

TFS :-)

purtroppo questo scatto non ha la stessa nitidezza del primo scatto pubblicato.

per quanto riguarda il discorso "natura" mi spiace essere entrato in un simile circolo. Mah tanto potrò uscirne quando voglio.

anche io lavoro su aperture molto grandi (1.8 - max 5.6) per sfocare lo sfondo. A questo aggiungo obiettivi molto lunghi e vicinanza al soggetto. questi tre aspetti donano uno sfondo moooolto sfocato. purtroppo diminuisce la nitidezza del soggetto fotografato del tipo testa a fuoco - coda sfocata. Cosa che nelle tue foto non appare.

Papale, giustifico questo usando buone chiusure (per avere tutto il soggetto a fuoco) con sfocatura PS sullo sfondo.

non è un'accusa, è un modo di lavorare. Poi non ho alcuna prova. E questo non è un processo.Maledetti comunisti. hanno ucciso loro JFK.... (.)(.)

Di cosa stavamo parlando?

ciao Mario :-D

Superb capture, Andrea. Very nice moment here. The colors are beautiful, so are the BG and the POV. Hope he was fed well after such a cry for food :)
Bravo and TFS

Mi piace molto questa foto!
Sembra di sentire il suono del richiamo....
Ma, non potevi togliere quella macchiolina?!

Ciao Franco

Hello Andrea
Very nice shot of this dipper. Very sharp and good composition, unfortunately of that white spot/ring and little black spot on the right.
Very well done!
Greetings Jan-arie

Hey Andrea!

I only have one word for you, EXELLENT

Love the details, sharpness, POV, colors, BG, everything. And the pose that he/she is doing is very nice.



Hej Andrea!
Piekny ptak, pelen ekspresji, a trawka w tle dodaje mu uroku. Jednak skadrowalabym troche wyzej, bez tego sliskiego dolu.
Gratuluje, ze nie sploszyl Cie ten ptak :)

Hi Andrea,
What an excellent action photo. Your low POV is outstanding it brings out the best of the Dipper. Great clarity and details and a lovely composition. A pitty of the two spots on the right of the bird.

Hello Andrea
