Stefano and I got up early on Saturday morning and decided it was cool enough to drive across town to visit our favorite bird reserve, the Parco della Piana.
To be quite honest, we didn’t think we’d see anything worth photographing, since it’s really late in the birding season now, but we were wrong.
We came across and managed to take a whole bunch of photos of a Little Grebe family…Four fluffy adorable babies and their constantly diving (for food) parents. Delightful!
We arrived just in time. After about 15 minutes, the babies and their parents swam off slowly to the other side of the lake, and the young ones soon disappeared from sight. Back to the nest for a rest, I guess…
A photographer entered the hut soon thereafter and, after peering outside for a few seconds, sighed: “There isn’t anything to photograph here.”
I said nothing (it wouldn’t have been nice of me to gloat!). 🙂
It’s all a question of luck…of being in the right place at the right time…
