Taking pictures of the passerines birds along the coastal marshes of Charente Maritime department, France. August 2012.

During the month of August 2012, we photographed passerine birds of the coastal marshes of the Charente Maritime department in France. These photographs of birds are for an exhibition project that will happen in 2013. We decided to photograph endangered species such as the aquatic warbler or bluethroat. Indeed, we want to show through this exhibition that many unknow animal species are currently in danger. For example, the number of couples of the aquatic warbler is smaller than African elephants. Few people are aware of that fact.

Besides the aquatic warbler and the bluethroat birds which are the most difficult passerines to photograph, we had the opportunity to observe the sedge warbler, reed bunting and reed warbler. To get these photos, we have to arm ourselves with patience. The hide was prepared early in the morning before sunrise. Then, in a absolute silence, we have to wait until the birds got out of the night torpor to feed. We made one photograph per day because these birds are always moving and very fast. Finally, after 6 days of hunt we managed to shoot five different species.
