Normunds, I am enjoying your series. You have done a great job with all the whites, and here is another excellenr pose. Thanks...

Again you have taken a wonderful shot with perfect management of the white. Congrats!

it must be hard for them to run on Snow/ice but i guess they still manage to take off. Very good action shot here and I guess you had to move along with it. Well done!


An excellent shot Normunds. You have handled the whites superbly (not an easy thing to do).
You have captured a great post here as well.
My only nit would be the pale blue / off white border. I personaly would have gone for black, just my opinion :-)
Thanks for posting.

Hello Normunds
Wonderful shot.


Beautiful, well composed, crisp and clear shot. I very much like the amazingly rich shades of white, perfectly accented by the black and red beak and the black feet. The dancing pose is just beautiful. Funny to look at. Best regards,

Excellent action shot Normunds! Beautiful pose of the bird, great POV and DOF. Great details on the white feathers. TFS!

This is even better than your previous sawn photo. Excellent timing.
I have the same lens and this photo inspires me to get a shot as good as this one!
Excellent work!
