Bearded Reedling
Been a while since I last posted down here so sorry for that but have been abroad to photograph on many occasions and been hosting many workshops wich took out much of my time.

Today I had a great day out on my own and went out to photograph these Bearded Reedlings amongst others.

greetings,

Jeroen Stel

WOW! This is truly spectacular, Jeroen! A stunning wildlife capture that is very creative and artistic at the same time - not an easy feat! I am not familiar with this species but I just looked it up - very unusual - would love to see one in person. HUGE CONGRATULATIONS ON THIS MARVELOUS SECOND PLACE WIN!!

Winning The Gold, The Photo of the Day and also the “Grand Prize” is such an honor after days of taking photographs and doing your best to present them in a professional way, you realize that it is well worth it, and to graciously share them with us.
Thank you and Congratulations. Merna
