Yes that’s me!!!!… well in my younger years.
I can’t remember when I ever got the passion to start birding but on these pictures you get an idea.
Here we were out with an uncle of a friend of mine placing sticks to prevent the farmers driving over the birds nests.
That Friend of mine is now actually working for Birdlife International in South America.
I did lose track of the birds maybe when they went south I stayed north.
But I was also busy with other interest like soccer, school and maybe with getting adult and stuff like that.
The last 10 years I am professionaly making sculptures. It became more serious
cause it became a job.
You get more responsibility but that leads to great jobs,
nice travels and beautiful nature cause you mostly work outside.
When I did a 2 week project in Portugal there was no birding on my mind.
Until… I saw the birds flying around what I dreamed of when I was a kid.
I saw the Flamingos, Bee eaters, little Owls etc etc….
I just got a camera to photograph my sculptures so I tried it on the birds.
I don’t have the pictures any more cause they were terrible…hahaha.
I got a new field guide of birds and watched ,read and learned about birds, the anatomy and
photography and of course the combination of them.
The last picture….. this is me now in 2013 happy together with my better half
making pictures of birds in Kuwait.
