Award Shortlist   


In northern Italy, the "Piviere Tortolino" (Dotterel) arrives at the end of August, stopping on the high mountain meadows for a few days.
Here it feeds on insects, especially grasshoppers.
He is very calm and confident: he approaches the photographer without fear, preferring to walk rather than fly away.
