Photo of the month: June 2019

The scarce and shy honey buzzard unexpectedly appeared before our forest photography hide in the southern part of The Netherlands. Waiting a while before starting to shoot photo's, to prevent the bird from taking of at first camera sounds, the honey buzzard offered us a 4 minute-lasting period of shear top entertainment. An unbelievable experience.

Photo of the month: May 2019

Spring is in the air! This great kiskadee was over the moon when he saw a potential partner. The yellow crest was raised and the wings were shown to make a very, very positive first impression.

Photo of the month: March 2019

The photo of this month shows a male snowcap. The photo is taken during the round trip through Costa Rica that my wife and I made in February-March 2019. The exciting colors of this hummingbird and the fine structures of the verbena flowers, makes a beautiful combination.

February 2019: northern goshawk (Accipiter gentilis)

The photo of this month shows a mantling female northern goshawk. The size of this raptor in combination with the spread tail and wings makes it an impressive appearance.

January 2019: dipper (Cinclus cinclus cinclus)

The photo of this month shows a dipper, a rare visitor in The Netherlands. This dipper was present in the eastern part of The Netherlands during a few days in early 2019. It was quiet a long wait to get nice light for photography. But it was worth the while to wait. Only a few positions near the dam were fit for the purpose to get a clear background and light on the dipper. Only one moment gave the opportunity to make the photo I had in mind.
