Hello Andrea,
Very nice capture of a Black-necked Grebe in winter plumage. Excellent sharp shot in good lighting. Your workshop diving photos are amusing.
This species is rare in Sweden, breeding in a few places in the south.
TFS and best wishes, Ivan

ottimo riflesso, peccato solo l'increspatura dell'acqua che crea in riflesso a due teste

Hi Andrea,
Very nice capture!
Good details, beautiful composition and colors.
Well done!

Perfect eye Andrea.
Good colour presentation. Very well done. TFS. Stev

Hello Andrea,
this shot is fabulous, such wonderful colors and excellent details. I love the reflection a lot and the BG colors works well with the birds colors. Even the red eye looks fabulous ;-).
Very nice work.

Hello Andrea,
Most impressive shot of this lovely bird in his winter plumage. The red eye really stands out. Great sharpness and beautiful reflection. The water is beautifully calm and has a lovely colour. Excellent composition!! Great workshop pics!
Many thanks, Ulla

hmmm, non facile un'inquadratura verticale per un soggetto che porta (anche grazie alle onde concentriche ) ad un'inquadratura di tutt'altra natura.

ok per sabato (butto l silea, ma poi si decide)

ciao mario

ps: oggi sono stato a venessia. incredibile i passerotti vengono a becchettare ad un metro da te.

propongo altra uscita.

ulteriore uscita non ho mai fatto le maschere di venezia.

Outstanding photos! And I am SO GLAD that you showed us this sequence!
This is so much what I see here daily with merganzers, loons and shags diving / fishing!

I have not managed to shoot a sequence like that,
likely as I have not figured out the "continuous mode"...

I am also pleased that you show this in multiple WS shots, rather than as a collage!

Great clarity and detail on all these shot. Outstanding piece of photography! So cudos to you my friend! Ciao, Jay.

PS The dual-beaked reflection takes the cake!

Ciao Andrea, stasera vado un po' di corsa ma domani spulcer senza dubbio i link per saperne di pi di questo delizioso svasso dall'occhio rosso acceso, bello e particolare il riflesso sdoppiato, ciao Silvio

Bella imagen y mucho ms bella reflexin Andrea de este llamativo zampulln.
Me encanta el detalle de su vistoso ojo y la agudeza de la captura sobre un perfecto entorno acutico, que brinda la posibilidad de captar el excelente reflejo.
Tal vez la altura de la imagen es algo excesiva... creo que podria recortarse ligeramente.
Espectacular secuencia de los dos workshops complementarios.
Gracias y saludos... Ricardo

Beautiful image and much more beautiful reflection Andrea of this attractive grebe.
I love the detail of their showy eye and the sharpness of the capture on an perfect aquatic environment that offers the possibility to capture the excellent reflex.
Perhaps the height of the image is something excessive... I believe that it could be cropped lightly.
Spectacular sequence of the two complementary workshops.
Thank you and regards... Ricardo

Favoloso ritratto di svasso picolo. Bravo.

Very sharp and magnificent colours. Funny workshop indeed.

Excellent light and reflection in this shot of the grebe.
Very cute bird with the feathers all fluffed out.
I like that read eye.
The exposure is very good, and so is the POV.
TFS : )

Ciao Andrea

Hey꿥id you try some red-eye removal on this one? Looks like it needs some :))))))))))))))))
What a splendid capture!
I뭢 really amazed that you뭭e managed to get such a great deal of details on his eye from such a distance.
The details and colors resulted here are just outstanding and the composition is definitely enhanced by that beautiful double-headed reflection :))))))))))))))))))))))))))
By the way, I뭭e noticed that all your recent shots are taken with the Canon 1D MkII N and that wonderful 400 mm prime. Did you buy some new equipment? Or are they borrowed from a friend? :)

Anyway, Bravo and TFS

Hi Andrea,
I've been busy lately, so I've a lot to catch up. Saw this one in your gallery. In one word: Fantastic!
The sharpness and composition (also portrait) is great. The calm water helps a lot. Also like your workshop images. Great!

Buenas Andrea
Estuve fuera unos das y me he perdido unas cuantas "Photos" muy buenas por cierto, este zampullin es una preciosidad y bien sacado
Un saludo

Nice shot of color and good clarity.
