– Last pictures of the series I took during the short snow episode that brought me great luck with the Goshawk female hunting a pheasant. These are not pictures you can hope taking easily; since I won’t have another chance at witnessing such a scarce scene, I enjoyed the moment fully… Enough snow was covering the ground, the sun was out, the decor was set with American oak leaves and the showed up searching for ants and pulverising flakes around!
These pictures were shot on the 4th of february.
L’épisode neigeux m’a régalée… avec les photos de l’Autour des palombes, ces images non plus on ne les refait pas tous les jours alors j’en ai profité: il venait de neiger, le soleil était de sortie, le décor planté de feuilles de Chênes rouge et le Pivert a bien voulu faire son apparition et farfouiller dans la neige à la recherche de fourmis. Bien sûr, l’idée était de déclencher au moment où il l’envoyait valser!
Clichés pris le 4 février.
