May 10th, 2014. Wildlife photo project about birds of La Dombes in France

May 10th, 2014. Wildlife photography trip devoted to the birds of La Dombes. For one week we photographed birds from floating blinds moving us on several swamps in the region. Dombes is renowned for the richness and diversity of bird species because there are over 1000 swamps and ponds in the region. For this trip, the weather was very variable with a cold north wind. It was very unusual conditions for the region that have forced us to focus on birds such as purple herons, herons, egrets and night herons. We are fortunated to make several pictures of kingfishers. We put forward our know-how to capture the atmosphere of this region. We favored an approach based on environmental animal portrait.
