Hello to the friends who are still active in TrekNature, I am less, I would come to post pictures from time to time, I will never forget it is here by viewing your photos and reading your critics that I learned and improved my wildlife photographies.

By the end of April I had bought a new DSLR Nikon D500 and by the end of May I bought a new portrait lens that I would use for wildlife photography Sigma 135mm f/1.8 DG HSM ART.

"Daddy who takes over from Mommy".

Photographing Northern Flicker parents at the nest I noticed that the female Northern Flicker remains in the nest with her chicks until the male arrives at the nest and it is thereafter that in her turn she goes to look for food, but it must be said that the male does not stay for a long time in the nest at his turn he leaves with in his beak excrement to keep the nest clean and not to leave odors for predators.

******* Happy Fathers Day *******

Bonjour Asbed,

Tu as bien capturé l'action des oiseaux. la prise de vue permet de voir les détails des pics flamboyants. La qualité de la lumièere embellit les couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.

Hello Asbed,
Your series of this Nothern Flicker on facebook was impressive. This was one of the best and interesting photos of them. Great quality in sharpness, timing and white balance. Beautiful natural colors.

Hello Asbed,
Well timing shot, no doubt. Nice to see you bought the anew Camera and lens. But 135mm lens isn't perfect for birding. No doubt, it's very good for portrait.
Thanks for sharing,
Regards and have a nice weekend,

Hi Asbed,
Congratulations for your new camera / lens - and of course to you for shooting this beautiful photo! Perfect sharpness, timing and composition. I don't know if a 135 mm lens is the ideal for bird photography, but this image became lovely. And the title is good as well. Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards from Ireland, László
