No Waders Waiting

Curious Common Snipe

Curious Common Snipe

 

This morning the weather promised to be nice for making low-angle shots, with waders as a main target (no wind and sun). When I arrived at the spot, I found however that they were not there, that is: not at my side of the lake. Only a Common Snipe (Watersnip) and some reed birds were present. It gave me however opportunity to shoot a juvenile Bluethroat (Blauwborst) up close, as well as some more juvenile Bearded Reedlings (Baardman). So all in all it wasn’t that bad. And I had some nice company this time from  another photographer, Remco ….. after I left he probably had the waders crawling all over him 😉 …..

    Hallo Hans,

    Al met al was het toch wel een geslaagde ochtend………hoewel de tijd sneller ging, toen we aan het ouwehoeren waren dan wat ik voor mijn lens kreeg. Je juveniele Baardmannetjes vind ik wel de mooiste uit je serie, hoewel de jonge BB er ook lekker op staat.

    Was die vliegende Rietzanger niet scherp genoeg?

    Gr,

    Remco
