As I wrote in my last blog post I decided to focus on wildlife photography this summer. And so I did.
I was happy to know some good locations of past wildlife photography sessions. Furthermore, I got a very good tip of my community. So, I was able to work on four different kind of picture series for the last couple of weeks. One of those is done: The series about the next generation of the middle spottet woodpecker and the great crested grebe.
Both are living in the same habitat, the small river “Nette“ in North Rhine Westphalia. The great crested grebes are breeding there every year and so I was able to get some special kind of pictures.
An amazing experience was to watch the middle spottet woodpecker feeding their offspring in a tree hole. It was a once-in-a-lifetime-chance because they were breeding straight in front of a small pedestrian-bridge only a few feet away. That was great fun to take pics.
Next week I will work on the 5th wildlife project for a couple of days: The world of puffins in Iceland. I am very excited about that!
I wish you a great start into the summer time.
