[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This species it's not easy to see and shoot. At least in my country, but i think in other countrys also, because they are only 2 pictures of this on Treknature:
http://www.treknature.com/gallery/photo80015.htm (Sweden)
http://www.treknature.com/gallery/photo157869.htm (Turkey)
This image was shoot in the summer 2008 in forest of Apuseni mountains. I saw this species in two photo sessions but i only had it in view a total time of ~30 seconds. This image is a 80% crop because this bird didn't let me approach more then 10 meters.

I'm not the only romanian photographer who shoot this species. You can also see this species in my friend's gallery Florian Andronache:
SPECIES: Ficedula Albicollis (lat.) // Collared Flycatcher (en.) // Muscar Gulerat (ro.)

Chiar este o specie rara.Eu am fotografiat un muscar vara trecuta.Era un mascul.La inceput am crezut ca nu este muscar dar pana la urma mam convins ca este muscar.

nice to see this tuny and very beautiful bird, TFS Ori

Hello Anghel,
Indeed an uncommon bird which you donīt see very much. Beautiful photo. The colours are bit soft, but the sharpness is good and the composition and POV excellent.

Salutare si felicitari pentru o asemenea captura. Intr-adevar o specie rara si greu de fotogafiat. In vara lui 2007 am incercat sa fotografiez unul pe linga Brad, dar fara rezultate remarcabile. Poate la vara ;)
