PHOTO INFO: Although I saw Little Bittern and Bearded Reedling a few times before a had no good pictures with those species. This two species are shy and they stay in the reed.
I usually I don't stay hidden very long time in one place and expect that the bird to come to me, but then I said to myself to make a try.
But is seems the change in strategy gave me results. In those two hours which I stayed hidden behind a bush of reed I captured good pictures with both species.

The first picture was made at 1:28:41 PM and the picture no. 5 at 1:30:55 PM. So the hole thing lasted less then 2 minutes. I made 16 images in that time

SPECIES: Ixobrychus Minutus (lat.) // Little Bittern (en.) // Starc Pitic (ro.)

It's really a very usuful guide. :))

Very good captures. and collage.

Ohoo, o serie foarte foarte buna! Ai imagini foarte clare, care merg si singuri, lumina buna, culorile naturale, putin pacat ca ultimul, cel cu pestele nu e cel mai 'sharpest' din serie, dar si asa te felicit pentru ca ai reusit sa ilustrezi o actiune vazuta numai de un numar mai mic de oameni de pe glob, intru'n mod deosebit!

Felicitari pentru aceasta reusita fotografie!

Un colaj deosebit despre starcul pitic.

Hello Anghel,
this is very special and interesting collage! I like idea, poses of birds, composition, details.

Best regards, Leonid

Salut Anghel
Excelent! Nu am cuvinte!
Doar ca poate prima imagine nu se incadreaza cu titlul si ai fi putut spune 4 pasi in loc de 5, dar probabil stii tu mai bine motivul. Apoi, banuiesc ca ai inceput sa observi perechea, apoi, ai observat capturarea pestelui! Foarte frumos!
Numai bine, Oana

Buna Anghel

Super reusita serie! Pe langa faptul ca ai reusit sa surprinzi intreaga actiune, ai obtinut si toate imaginile componente extrem de clare...Felicitarile mele! Fiecare cadru e excelent, iar insumate sunt un colaj splendid.
Uitande-ma la varianta mare, e o placere sa vad detaliile super clare si culorile foarte frumoase ale starcului pitic.

Bravo si merci de postare

Interesting story with bird's life. Your patience was prizewinning. Pictures have good sharpness and pretty colours. Fact is riddle, as could to add set about so large resolution.
