Story behind this photos

After birdringing


As birdringer I am ringing birds of prey during winter. After we caught this falcon we let her free! Some days later I saw her again by a photographytrip and she was not very afraid about me and there were only 5m between us!

Another fact is that this bird doesn't want to lose some energy so they stay at one place.

I made some photos and let her alone!
