cranes. The end of a season.

The crane is one of the species of birds that have felt great predilection when photographing. When I started in bird photography, they were my first successes. This season has been exceptional. In December when the population was already established, hide area had a number of copies to the middle of the day feeding on acorns and seed sprouts. Playing with luck and some pass near the appointed place was all I had to wait here.

In late December and early January we had a photograph assured success in one session. short approaches for portraits, frames for several birds, actions between fellow ... No one would know what would happen in front of your lens.
The method of photography was from a mobile hide, depending on the state of the crops I've been moving in the sector. Thus also he played with chance, different scenarios, different funds ....

Once past the month of January began to notice a decrease of cranes in the area. This reduced our success shooting half. More difficult to hit on approach but these days guaranteed shares of wedding party. Quite a sight to witness here, south of Extremadura, the banks of the Alqueva reservoir and from the depths of encinar. They are scenes that may not be repeated again in front of me my goal.

Is the illusion of people who have gone through this hide that motivate me for next year. Great are the shared experiences, unforgettable moments spent in two months, photographers who fulfilled his dream, the photographing cranes in these lands. Hopefully next season is like this.
