The fens on the moorland of the eastern part of Noord-Brabant are almost dried out at the end of this summer. Luckily, migrating waders, such as this juvenile Greenshank (Tringa nebularia), find these former water surfaces easily, and they pick an amazing amount of food from the mud. I personally like the expressionist style of this image, i.e. the spotlight effect on the bird (created by the last sunrays of the day), strongly contrasting with the dark colourful surroundings.
