Hej Micke!
Va läckert!
A very fine capture of the Red-throated Diver taken from a great water level POV with excellent sharpness, colours and lighting.
Well done and thanks,

Har för avsikt att åka till Knuthöjdsmossen, kanske nästa år, just för att fota smålommen.

Hello Mikael,
Very neat and sharp image of the Red-Throated Loon, excellent point of view, lighting and colours are beautiful, A superb captured!
Thanks for sharing and have a nice Sunday,
Best Regards,

Wow, amazing, very precise shot, congratulation! I saw mainly in winter plumage, but much more beautiful in breeding plumage. Well done. cheers,Zoli

Hello Mikael,
wonderful capture of this lovely bird with fantastic light and beautiful colours. I also like the fine sharpness and the good contrast to the nicely blurred background. Well chosen POV to shoot it with a nice eye contact.
Best wishes,

Ciao Mikael, fascinating capture with fantastic reflections, splendid light and colors, very well done, friendly Silvio

Hej Micke,
en kanonbild av skönheten, den här måste du vara stolt över,
Som jag sa till dig att veckan innan så var det inte så många fåglar som vi såg men det räcker ju med en och om man har tålamod så kaa det bli ett så här fint resultat.
This is a great picture with beautiful natural colours, very nice low POV, correct exposure and accurate,
Well done mf

Hej Micke!
A brilliant capture of this fantastic bird that we had intended to see this summer up north, but we didn't make it so maybe next year instead! I wonder how close you're able to get to them? You certainly did very well with your equipment!
Many thanks and best regards, Ulla

excellent capture of handsome diver. this is one of my dream scenes. I have seen Red Throated Diver once, in winter pale form. this is extraordinary. congratulations indeed, Mikael.
best wishes

Bonjour Mikael,
L'épaisser du cou de l'animal me semble disproportionné (peut-ętre ā cause de l'utilisation du téléobjectif) mais il est tout de męme relativement bien valorisé.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Amazing bird and great photo Mikael! The POV and the composition are excellent. The lighting and the colours are fantastic. The sharpness is impressive.

Hello Mikael,
Fine and colorful bird-picture. Amazing yellow tint for a shot made on water. But these are the miracles of nature! Well chosen tight horizontal framing.
Technically as usual excellent.
Kind regards
