great capture with lovely BG. Did you see that females can be sexed by orange lower mandibule?

hi Lucamarini
very nice shot of these birds, colors and light are intense. Great moment of life, the speed could be faster to have all part neat.


Ciao Lucamarini,
Great timing, very nice pose. Well done and TFS
Best wishes,

Hello Lucamarini!

Excellent shot, in decisive time, with marvellous colour and DOF! TFS.

perfect timing... gr8 capture..



Ótimo enquadramento e cores.

A great candid.

Hello Lucamarini,
I do not have to say it isn't super sharp but it is a good decisive moment displayed colourfully and with an excellent blurred background...

Ottimo momento immortalato. Secondo me la foto puň essere ulteriormente migliorata schiarendola un po' e spostando un pelo il soggetto sulla destra.
Comunque hai avuto una sclta del tempo veramente notevole e i dettagli sono ottimi.

Ciao e grazie, Emanuele

Hello Pierdamiano,
Excellent capture of the Mating Kingfishers.. Perfect timing. I liked the POV and DOF used here. The blurred background helps the birds to stand out in this composition.Thanks a lot for sharing this picture.
