[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A rolinha [Columbina talpacoti (Temminck, 1810) (Aves: Columbiformes)] tem vasta distribuição por toda América do Sul, convive muito bem em ambiente urbano, onde a oferta de alimento é grande se contrapondo com a escassez de predadores naturais, uma espécie sinantrópica por excelência. Vive em paisagens abertas como plantações e cidades. Não se incomoda com a presença de outras aves mesmo o pombo que tem em abundância no centro das grandes cidades.

Sorry Livio, my friend, but this subject isn't my favourite ;-) Why? Because it is very similiar to pigeon and I'm not big fan of pigeons ;-) But photo is good - nice pose, great green BG and quality. I noticed that you've got many meters of barbed wire in Brasilia ;-)

A nice calm capture Livio,
Good detail, colours and sharpness.
Composition and exposure are spot on.
Good DOF and framing.
Thanks for posting, have a great weekend.

HAH... finally... a bird that you have that we have too. : )
Sharp details and beautiful light and colors.
Too bad you could not get rid of that little piece of barbed wire. I find it visually distracting and jarring to the mood of the picture. A fantastic POV. Well done and TFS. : )

Nice capture of this fluffed-up mourning dove. A higher POV would be nicer, but you usually don't get them at eye-level. I have seen my first one in Florida last year, beautiful bird but rather shy and careful, it stayed up in its tree.

Great details, colours and POv!

Hi Livio,

How are you doing? I wish you all the best for 2006! This is a nice picture. Very sharp and the bg is great. I don't like the barbwire much. Well done & TFS!
