The Nightingale is a very special bird and I will never forget the
moment when I first heard one in full song. Pure magic!
And when I also managed to get a shot of this particular male singing his little heart out I was over the moon! I have seen and heard many nightingales since then and have been lucky enough to photograph them as well which is something I do not take for granted: Nightingales like to skulk so they are very hard to see. It is always special.
Here are a few of my favourite Nightingale shots. Please click on the thumbnails for a larger version.
|Not the best nightingale shot ever but a very special photo to me - this was the first ever nightingale I got to watch AND I was able to take a photo of the magical moment when I first spotted it. So this shot will always have a place in my nightingale gallery!|
