In Sardinia, there are many lakes, but they're all artificial, like Coghinas lake, that it's the biggest one. The only natural lake is Baratz lake, small and a bit awful, at least with no big interest. Speaking about nature that lake hosts a small group of coots and sometimes you can see some raptor.But let's go back to Coghinas lake. Yesterday I had the opportunity to go around the lake, near a bridge quite interesting, with a particular environment. The day was a little damp and foggy, ma very motivating. In fact, I was expecting a moment like that, with the fog, for taking some nice picture, and I hope to have had success.
In this video, I'm going to show you how to build a photographic blind using natural stuff, like dry branches and some shade clothes. I'm sorry for the camera shaking but I didn't know how to stabilize the movement and I didn't have a gimbal (I bought a new one after that video). I hope you'll enjoy the video, and I hope you'll subscribe my YouTube channel.
In this old short video we can see that strange osprey behaviour during a normal photographic session from the car.
This wonderful birds come every year from Germany to pass here the winter, giving us the opportunity to observe them staying inside a car, because the pond where they hunt is really close to a road. Staying inside the car is not a problem for them, because they aren't scared from the strange shape of the cars, but if you get off ..... Bye, bye!!!
Little owls are for me, after the owls, one of the most fascinating nocturnial raptors, even because in Sardinia we don't have eagle owls, that I think they're the best one, as well as the snowy owl.
To see them, they're so cute and fluffy, but they're a really skilled hunter, so during the breeding season they can hunt a lot of prey in order to feed their chicks.
What to know
Before start to photograph little owls, let me say that the first thing you have to think about them, is their safety. In my opinion preserve their safety is vital, not only for this specie, but for all species. Respecting the nature, the little owls as well, should be a "must-do" for any wildlife photographer. Instead I often saw bad behaviour from some guy who pretend being nature lovers...But carry we on!
On the Net there are a lot informations about owls, in any languages, so the best tips I can give you, is to read them before to do anything. The knowledge is really important in this field.
