5 grams looking for food by phalalcrocorax 5 grams looking for food by phalalcrocorax
Same bird, same place (again), but not at the same moment.
This one was after a heavy snow, just after, there was a wonderful sun.
I am very happy with the result, even if the bird is not in front of the camera
I hope you are not bored with this specie :D

    This is such a neat photograph!  He looks like a little fairy performing a ballet while surrounded by sparkling jewels in a lovely atmosphere!  It is a really excellent shot!

Do you know what kind of bird this is? It acts like a kinglet, but I would need to see the top of the bird to tell.

Ha ha ha... yes, and in those 400GB, perhaps less than 15GB are good enough :D This bird is sooooo fast !! :D

Animals mean mammals only or birds are OK ? :D

Thank you. But I use a very good camera also.
I think the best advice I could give you is : make pictures again and again... and one day, you will have wonderful pictures way beyong mine (this advice worked well for me, so I am sure it will work well for you too :D )
Another good advice is : always be at the same height as your subject (even if that mean you have to lie on the ground ;-) )

Animals mean everything from fish to birds to elephants to well.. everything :D
And well I'll have to try that then, but I doubt I'll be as good as you are :)
And the other advice I shall put to practice asap, thank you C:
