Very interesting colors, composition and lighting, fine image of this lovely bird. tfs.

very very beautiful diver species and its very nice shot.
I saw it only twice and in winter plumage. This is really in fascinating colors.
you greatly captured it with a nice focus, low POV, excellent colors and with beautiful reflection.
thanks for showing us this beauty, Mikael.
best wishes

Tjena Micke,
fin bild av lommen.
Fin låg bildvinkel, bra skärpa och snygga naturliga färger.
Har varit i Spanien i 10 dagar nu, åker hem i helgen.
Ingen härfågel i sikte än. :-(

Vi hörs när jag har kommit hem.

Hej Micke,
A very fine Capture of Smålommen!
The low POV, sharpness and colours contribute to a very fine well-composed image.
Thanks and best regards,
Hälsningar fån ett blåsigt Skåne,

Hello Michael,
Beautiful photo in soft colours and a great atmosphere. Excellent composition with a nice reflection on the water. Also nice is the reflection of the water on the neck of the diver.

Hello Mikael!
Absolutely awesome photo!!! Great water-level POV, great focus, fantastic details and natural colors.
Excellent composition too, the reflection is a bonus!

Hej Micke,
I'm sorry to have missed this fabulous capture of the Red-throated Diver, a bird I would love to see! In fact we´ve just talked about going up to Hällefors early next summer to see this place. Hopefully it will materialize! Your capture is so beautiful showing it in a lovely pose on the still water with a nice reflection. Great sharpness and lovely colours against the misty background.
TFS and cheers, Ulla

This is just perfect. I'd believe you if you said that this is a drawing not a photo. Very well done indeed.
