The things we do...

Lying on your belly in frozen leaf litter on your lunch break may not seem like most people's idea of a good time, but sometimes, needs must.  This lunchtime I was back with the local Black-bellied Dipper on a gorgeous, crisp winter's day but typically when I got there the Dipper wasn't showing at very well at all.  Thankfully after a while it moved closer and further upstream to where I have seen it before so fully expecting it to use one of its favourite perches, I moved on ahead of it and lay in wait.  After ten cold minutes, the Dipper moved closer until finally perching on just the perch I was hoping for, but by then the light had moved round but still allowed stunning photographic views only a matter of metres away.

  1. Cette photo est magnifique!! Tout est parfait. La proxi, le reflet, la posture du cincle, le cadrage, tout rend le cliché très beau. Vraiment une très belle prise. Bravo
