The birds are starting to come out from the nest, and I have to move carefully in the woods and keep my dog on a short leash. The one above is a young fieldfare (Turdus pilaris) and it obviously wasn’t able to fly yet. He was just flapping his wings and could barely get on to this branch from the ground were he was staying. It sure was fear of danger that made him “fly”, but for me it was great to be so close. I am not a bird photographer, most of the birds I see is more like dark dots high up above me, just a small silhouette agains the sky, or some noise in the bush.
I love the fresh, green colours that are so abundant in june. I was down by the river not long before sunset, that is around 22:30. The light was filtering through the vegetation that consisted mainly of ferns. It was a green eldorado and I did some photos. When I looked at them at the computer I was shocked. Alle the greens had turned yellow. Big disappointment. It was probably related to sunset, but I tried to get my photos more green by editing them a little. I wanted them to show what I had experienced, but it did not work. The camera wanted to decide.
