[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Il Gracchio alpino (Pyrrhocorax graculus) è uno dei più comuni uccelli che si possono trovare in ambiente alpino.
Si può trovare regolarmente nei pressi dei rifugi in quanto è onnivoro e si ciba comunemente di rifiuti.
E' fantastico vedere le loro picchiate per raccogliere al volo i pezzetti di pane lanciati nel vuoto.
Foto scattata dal Rifugio Sasso Piatto prima dell'arrivo di un temporale.

The Alpine Chough (Pyrrhocorax graculus) is one of the most common birds that can be found in an alpine environment.
It can be usually found near the mountain huts as it is omnivorous and eats also waste.
It 'great to see them fly down quickly to collect on the fly small pieces of bread thrown into the void.

Bonjour Gianmaria,
C'est bien évidemment sur le plan artistique qu'il faut aborder cette publication très graphique dans une lumière bien maitrisée faisant oublier qu'elle est en couleur.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
