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 Białowieża - day 3

I'll start from the end, just like on Facebook. :) Check day1 and day2 as well.

Last day of shooting was short, we only had in plan to capture Eurasian Pygmy Owl, the smallest Owl in Europe. We started early in the morning with snow and cold. I hoped for some nice weather (it was end of April), but naah. Also the Owl wasn't very cooperative as it was sitting on high branches and there was no possibility to get close enough for some nice shots. So here are only few that look good enough to put them on the Internet. :)

After I packed and got ready to leave the weather changed and the day became sunny and warm. Puszcza Bialowieska this time of a year was especially beautiful with all the ground forest covered with a carpet made of little white flowers. Absolutely stunning view which I tried to capture on the camera but it really does not give the beauty of it.

Autumn shots from Milicz Ponds

Around a year ago I bought a manual lens, Takumar 50mm/1.4 and I enjoy the image it's producing very much. Especially on 1.4 aperture. Late autumn I took it to the nature to play with it. Here are some shots from the day, macro ones are from Takumar.

Łazienki Park

Łazienkowski Park in Warsaw is a place well known amongst Poles. Everyone heard of it at least once in school. This 76 hectare park and palace complex lies in the Warsaw center and was designed in XVIII century. It looks gorgeous in spring with juicy green trees and bushes and many flowers in different parts of the park. Hungry after winter, red squirrels are all over the place looking for snacks. Below you can see Chopin's statue and an old Orangery.
