Welcome to my web gallery. It gives a flavour of my nature photography work in a diary format. This blog will be updated regularly with new pictures. All photos are taken 'in the wild', with love and respect for nature.

I am very happy with this photo of a female Parrot Crossbill (Loxia pytyopsittacus/Grote Kruisbek). It is an iconic bird species with a massive bill, designed to open-up pine cones and eat their seeds. They come down to the forest floor once or twice a day to drink.
This winter flocks of Parrot Crossbills are present in The Netherlands. Previous invasions were in the winter of 1887/88, 1982/83, and 1990/91.

Nature photography is my passion! The diversity of nature keeps inspiring me. I always look for opportunities to capture the beauty of the world we live in.
I am 52 years old, happily married to Judith.
