We got even more snow that night, so I woke up early and decided to take my camera and go to the park around the lake. Little did I expect it would be such a marvellous birding experience!

    Super mooie foto een zwaan heeft altijd een aantrekkings kracht als ik met me camera er eentje tegen kom…
    Het is gek dat ik niet wat vaker op je RB profiel kijk je heb er hele mooie foto’s bij zitten maar aan de andere kant RB is ook zo groot….
    Groetjes en een fijn weekend !!!

  • Ja, op elkaars profiel kijken komt er niet zo vaak van, meestal… Jouw fantastische wildlife foto’s springen er bij mij meestal uit via de ‘image feed’ – Ik vind het dan ook een hele eer dat je de tijd nam om even te komen ‘buurten’, Erik! Dank je wel voor de fijne commentaren en complimenten!
