When thinking about ‘nature’ or ‘wildlife’, many city dwellers think about ‘having to travel somewhere’. What many people often neglect is the variety of species they could find in their towns and cities. City parks and ponds offer huge possibilities for wildlife lovers and photographers alike. I visited many parks in huge cities like Taipei, Bangkok and Beijing and was every time surprised at what I found. But closer to home, I spend time in parks as well. Especially the ponds usually host an interesting mix of waterfowl and more often than not, the birds and ducks are less shy since they are used to two-legged creatures… In this blog some shots I made over the last days during my ‘lunch break walks’. When choosing the right angle of view and backgrounds, no-one could tell this is in one of the largest cities in The Netherlands. Or so I think 😉 .
