That "guy" was eating a gecko hunted perhaps during the night, but left on the stone where is the owl in the picture. Ants, of course, took advantage of the situation, but only for a while until it came to get it prey.

 

Catching on the fly it's been very challenging because it was moving quite quickly, but at the end I managed to take some pictures. That one is the best in my opinion and I'm very happy of the result.

Argentiera

Argentiera is a location in the north of Sardinia. It's known for its mining country, but for the coastline as well. There're also some small beaches where having a sunbath or swimming in the sea. Beeing quite near my city, I go there often for landscape and seascape photography.

This time I took advantage of the rough sea, for capturing some pictures of waves and to take a couple of long exposition using an ND 1000 filter. Actually the long exposition were not so good, due to the wind that shaked my small tripod.... Yes, I was using the travel tripod in order to have less weight to carry on, but I didn't think that the wind was so strong.

Waterfalls!!!

As you know, I love waterfalls laughing, and also this time I took advange about the "yellow" for going around and taking some new pictures. For "yellow" I mean the Italian regional classification about the Coronavirus. In fact my region, Sardinia, now is orange, that means more restrictions, like not going everywhere, but we can only go around the municipalities where we live.  It's a bit strange that, but basically we can do almost everything apart going to gyms, cinemas and stuff like that. I hope we can start to live normally as we did before the Covid 19, and to forget this bad situation very soon.

Anyway in the weekend I had the opportunity to see a new, for me, waterfall called Sas lapias, very, very beautiful made by three single waterfall, even though there's only one stream. The second one waterfall I had already photographed before, but this time I went at the bottom of the waterfall, in order to change perspective.

Both waterfalls are really interesting and quite easy to reach, so I'll publish soon a Viewpoint to show you where find them. But now have a look the pictures:

Recently I'm not taking many wildlife pictures, because I'm a little concentrated in new others activities, but I hope you like these new pictures and if you are interested in my work you would follow me watching my Youtube channel. Bye for now and I hope to see you really soon.

Italian version

This picture has been taken in july 2019, during a warm morning. As always for wildlife photography I wake up very early in order to arrive in the place before the sunrise, and for not beeing seen from the animals as well. Fortunately the raptor arrived with the right light, not so strong, and it stayed on the perch enough time to allow me to take several pictures in that nice position and a good background. That "guy" is very shy, and with any noise is tends to fly away, but having a camera with an electronic shutter the problem doesn't exist.

A nice note: on the left shoulder there's an ant, visible by enlarging the image.
