Good friends of TN, I present/display this poor man to you, who the other night was unemployed in the highway. went accompanied of my good friend Javier Milla, when we saw that he was dazzled by the lights of the car and he did not go away. So lying down, we approached him and we could sacrle some takings. I hope that you like. A greeting.

You'd be really lucky to spot this night bird.
I rarely have seen one of this. I always heard it, but didn't found.
Good chot with great details expecially on the eye.
Well done, Jose!


Hi Jose

Cute little bird. Nicely composed shot. Very good saturation of colour.

Hi Jose.

You're really lucky I must admit. It's always hard to find & see nightjars in nature.You've captured a good pose which shows us all the details of the bird.

Well Done & TFS.

Hola José Luis,
Triste foto de este pájaro de aspecto desamparado. La profundidad de campo tan justa y la falta de fondo acentúan la soledad del pobre.
Un saludo, José M.

great picture, refreshing in TN. gracias, Ori

A very interesting bird, Jose.
I really like the intricate patterns of colors on his feathers.
Good light and sharp details.
The BG looks a little weird, though, especially below the bird.
TFS. : )

Creo que no habia visto uno de estos en mi vida, es un pajaro realmente bonito. Me gusta como lo encajaste pefectamente en el ancho de tu profundidad de campo. Los detalles y el contorno son perfectos. Gracias y un saludo!

Pedazo mariquita que estas....... a lo forges.
Y te quejas de fotos mamonazo, pero si estas que te sales, arañones, ciervos, buitres y ahora un chotacabras.

Nightjar are always hard to shoot, you have done very well here.
The POV is maybe a little to low, but the details of teh plumage are excellent

Hi Jose,
Interesting story on how you came upon this shot.
The night BG really shows your subject well. Great job with the flash..Very sharp, detailed, and a colorful bird. Excellent DOF and interesting patterns in the plumage up this close..You did well to cash in on this opportunity.
Very well done.
