Birding without birds
Since last autumn we’ve got a Canadian moderator on Nederpix. Ok, he’s Dutch, but lives in Canada. This makes moderator meetings with the team a little hard. But this week Jan is in the Netherlands, making a tour along all moderators (and friends and family of course). Jaap, Jan and me went on a photography trip to the Lauwersmeer area. A good place to find different birds, in winter especially known for the large numbers of geese. But today the birds didn’t really want to cooperate. Either they were too shy, too far away or they were not present at all. A few birds did want to pose for the camera, like these Pale-bellied Brent Geese. A goose species that breeds on Spitsbergen and Greenland, but is quite shy there. So this was only the first time I could take pictures of them, at least something that did work out.
But apart from the birds we had a really nice day together 🙂
