Spring is the period I spent on voluntary protecting meadow birds. It's a relaxing way of working and can perfectly be combined with photography. After a while you get used to the habits of the birds and so now and then it's possible to take pictures of the object really close. This photo was made in the last hour before sunset with a cloudy sky. No hard contrasts. The low angle, eye contact and a minimal DOF makes the photo worthwile.
