I took this shot of a Kingfisher in Shkodra Lake, Albania.


Shkodra lake, is a large freshwater lake located on the border of Albania and Montenegro. It is home to a variety of wildlife, including many species of birds.


One of the most striking birds found in the Shkodra lake area is the kingfisher. Kingfisher (Alcedinidae) is a small, colorful bird that is found near rivers, lakes, and other bodies of water. The kingfisher is known for its bright blue and orange feathers, which make it easy to spot.


The kingfisher is a skilled fisherman, and it is often seen diving into the water to catch fish. Its long, sharp beak is perfectly adapted for catching and holding onto fish, which it then swallows whole. The kingfisher is also known for its distinctive call, which sounds like a sharp, high-pitched whistle.


The kingfisher is a beautiful and important part of the ecosystem in the Shkodra lake area. Its presence is a sign of the lake's health and vitality, and it serves as a reminder of the importance of preserving this important natural resource.


All digital purchased pictures are 300 dpi resolution.


A resolution of 300 dpi (dots per inch) is considered to be the standard resolution for printing high-quality images. DPI refers to the number of dots that can be printed in a one-inch row. When you have a high dpi, it means that the printer can produce a higher level of detail in the image, resulting in sharper and crisper prints.


The importance of 300 dpi resolution for a picture is significant, especially when you want to print it. If you're printing an image with a lower resolution, such as 72 dpi, it may appear blurry or pixelated when printed. This is because the printer cannot produce enough dots to accurately represent the image, resulting in a loss of quality.
