Hello everybody my name is Franco, I am from Rome, Italy, I am a truck driver, but my great passion is photonaturalism, I have a great passion for animals, especially for bird pictures, when I go to the swamp I enter another dimension , the sensation I feel lying in solitude in the mud and water is indescribable, being in close contact with the fauna that surrounds me, isolated from everything else, without noise or anything else, only in contact with nature, being very close to animals that do not they perceive my presence for my mimicry, sometimes too close that I can't photograph them. To photograph the fauna I blend in with the local vegetation, I self-build all the useful accessories for the best and comfortable camouflage, most of the time uncomfortable, but it doesn't weigh on me at all, I never get tired when I photograph. Unfortunately my work gives me little time for this passion of mine, however I always manage to cut out once a week a few hours to take pictures, I usually arrive in the swamps before dawn in the dark to position myself and wait for the time for a right light, that of the dawn that I prefer, sometimes even at sunset, but in a small percentage. I apologize in advance if I am not very present in the forum, first of all because I only speak Italian, I still help with the translator, then because I have to get acquainted with the mechanism of the forum, however I see many beautiful photos of other very good users, even if not I participate in the forum, however, I follow you all. Thank you.
