But I saw the water vole and got a picture, but from a bad angle.
But early this morning before the sun had even gone up and it was still pretty dark out there so I went down to a park that has two smaller ponds.
For I was down there the night before and the mandarin duck was there, so I thought it might be still there in the morning.
But it was not, but I saw a heron standing and slept on a nest of branches. So I took the opportunity to shoot it and experimented with shutter speeds and more. The heron stood there for a few minutes before it flew away. So I sat down on the bench and to my surprise there comes a kingfisher and lands in the tree above me seven meters away. I managed to take some pictures before it flew away. Then I went on to the oak forest that is near there, and there I had the opportunity to get close to a robin and got some nice pictures of it.
In the woods I also met a few squirrels and they are so wonderful to follow.
I was Pleased with the morning so I returned home.
Photo equipment i used this morning: camera nikon 3D,s and lens nikon 200-400mm f4 and a monopod.
