New Life


Moorhen feeding its little chick


It´s not easy sighting those little chicks living in a pond nearby my home. The reed is very cleverly used as camouflage. But early in the morning when there are not many people around, you can be lucky and catch a glimpse of them.

    1. Thank you, Inese!! 🙂 I know you like them and I was very lucky indeed! They are so cute and adorable. Just watched the moorhens feeding their chicks so lovingly again, unfortunately I forgot to bring my camera with me! But to be honest, sometimes it´s just nice to enjoy the surroundings without it 😉

  1. Aww, look at the birds having a great time! The babies are just enjoying the nice weather while watching mom and dad go about their humble day. I cannot believe you got such close pictures of them all, jeez girl! These birds are probably like “can we have some privacy please” LOL. This is amazing that they didn’t attack you or try to fly away, they must have liked the attention 😛

    1. Thank you sooo much for your lovely comment, Shay-lon!! 🙂
      I also felt with those parents, they were really busy getting something suitable to eat 😉 So now, apart from maybe being an assassin/ninja, I´ve also become a papparazzo – but only for animals 😉
      Have a wonderful day!! 🙂 xoxo

      1. I am not familiar with the film but visited Brugge six years ago for all too short a time on the way to Holland. What are you waiting for? 😉 😉 xoxo
