Birders taking a glance at the BirdingInSpain.com website will see a good number of photos, including scenery (mostly Steve West’s), plants, insects and, of course, birds. Notably, none of the bird photos were taken by the author of the website. Why not? Well, the most concise explanation would be that there is so much to see when birding in Spain that I just cannot arm myself with the buckets of patience that are needed to take good bird photos.
Here I’m not talking about snapshots, but rather the very accomplished bird photography of my neighbour Joan Manel Puig, and in particular (and in my opinion) the unrivalled camera work of the Italian master Daniele Occhiato. Here we have two dedicated bird photographers, experts in their field, with all the equipment, imagination and necessary knowhow to get the very best out of their art.
The results should speak for themselves, but if there is too much noise for them to be heard then listen to me and take a look at some of Daniele Occhiato’s bird photos by clicking on this link.
Keep it coming Daniele!
