Shooting situations

I took this photo near Kesznyéten in Borsod County, Hungary, on a wet meadow having evolved due to heavy rainfalls. The previous day, I set up my bird watching shelter next to a small lake, and I moved into it before dawn so that I could take photos of birds.

Further comments

Bird photography is one of my favorite themes. Very beautiful and atmospheric pictures can be taken with short exposure time, capturing the bird's motion in sharp detail. However, if I deliberately use long exposure time, the blur gives "life" to the image.
