[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is the feeling that I had when I saw this picture on my camera after shooting.
This is a Eurpean Roller in last light of the day.
When I saw that I jad the opportunity to use the moon in the picture because it was low, I began to search for an object that will share the moon in the picture and the roller was there.
To get this picture I needed to be not so close, if I had enough light I would use a higher apperture to get as much as DOF as I can.
The frame originally was vertical frame, and ther is not a big crop.
I hope you will like it.

Full description you can find in my former post European Roller.

Hello Elroyie,
very poetical image. Elegant, simple, and very moody.
Great to have a roller available when in search for a fitting object in front of a low moon. I wished I had that opportunity!
Thank you, and best regards,

Hi Elroyie,
This is great! You had a realy good timing for this. Very nice composition with great sharpness. The bird in fly with the moon in BG are delightful. WOW! Well done,
