Milicz Ponds

Few shots from late March of 2016. Not much to show. This is the only photo of Common Chiffchaff that I was able to capture so far, of documentary value to me. ;) Same with Long Tailed Tit.

Spring in Bialowieza - Day 1

This is so overdue.. Sorry about that. :)

Here is the last patch of photos from 2017 spring session in Bialowieza Forest. I found Lesser Spotted Eagle to be very expressive, fascinating photo subject. :) Also check out day2 and day3 if you haven’t seen them already.

European Bison

This years trip to Białowieża was in far less extreme weather conditions. Considering last year temperatures (below -20*C), this was almost a tropic with temperatures being around 0*C. I didn't have much luck with bison. We found early in the day 2 bulls feasting on the haystack, which is not very photogenic. Later that day we found two bigger herds and one of them was pretty far away and really not cooperative, started going away as we tried to approach it. The second one was more human-friendly. Most of the photos comes from the last encounter.

Still waiting for my shot of fighting bisons. Almost got one this time. ;)

Spring in Białowieża - Day 2

The second day was rather lazy with little activity near the hide. There was a single male Mallard, single Common Crane wandering around almost all day, single Red Fox, few Common Wood Pigeons that landed so far that none of the photos looks good enough (the same goes for Eurasian Jay). At the end of the day few Roe Deers came along with some Eurasian Bisons. So, to sum up, not so many photos from that day.

Check out day1 and day3.

When you have so lazy day the situation in hide is like this. :) One person looking, others sleeping.
