Ci siamo conosciuti oggi, sapevo del tuo livello, ma ciò che ho visto guardando le tue opere mi ha veramente impressionato. Non me l'aspettavo, da te si deve solo imparare, dopo aver visto le tue immagini mi viene da pensare se continuare o smettere. La scelta giusta credo sia continuare e imparare non so se raggiungerò mai il tuo livello, ma ci proverò anche con l'aiuto delle tue immagini. Grazie per queste meraviglie. Antonio
Bellissime foto... anche io sono di Pianoro e se cerchi un compagno di uscite fotografiche.. ne sarei realmente onorato.
Da rimanere senza fiato. Davvero meravigliose. Oltre alla qualità impeccabile, comunicano un amore per la natura infinito. Sinceri complimenti
una qualità e una quantità di immagini davvero impressionante,
I've looked through many of your images now and I can only say, WOW!

I hope you do not mind me contacting you but in searching the internet for images of the blue rock-thrush, Monticola solitarius, I found a number of your images on your PBase site which I would be interested in using for ARKive, if you would like to become involved.
ARKive - www.arkive.org - is a unique conservation initiative.
Films, photographs and audio recordings of the worlds animals, plants and fungi are being gathered into one centralised digital library. To date we have created digital multi-media profiles for some 3000 species, digitising and storing more than 20,000 still images and over 60 hours of moving footage. These important audio-visual records are being preserved and maintained for the benefit of future generations and are being made available via the ARKive website.
I can attach some more detailed documentation that will tell you a lot more about the ARKive project if you would like. However, in summary:
It is ARKive's current primary aim to compile audio-visual records for the 16,000-plus species currently threatened with extinction, according to the World Conservation Union's (IUCN) Red List of Threatened Species.
We are looking for media (moving footage, still images, audio) to depict each species' life history as comprehensively as possible. In order for us to achieve this aim we need help from as wide a variety of donors as possible and would like to be able to add you to our list of contributors.
The ARKive website acts as a showcase for image providers, displaying copyright and contact details with every image and links to each media donor's own web activities.
See examples of species which have been ARKived at www.arkive.org.
The team here at ARKive are constantly on the look-out for images of endangered species so please do let me know if you would like to contribute any other photographs of threatened species to ARKive, or if you have any queries. I am contactable on the email address below.
I hope to hear from you soon.

ARKive Media Researcher
"Over the past few decades a vast treasury of wildlife images has been steadily accumulating, yet no one has known its full extent - or its gaps - and no one has had a comprehensive way of gaining access to it. ARKive will put that right. It will become an invaluable tool for all concerned with the well-being of the natural world.
Sir David Attenborough
"ARKive is a noble project, one of the most valuable in all of biology and conservation practice. It has whatever support I am able to give it."
