Wildlife photography during a mandatory quarantine
By Micah Moen
Hello everyone, so today is Wednesday, I believe… We’ve been in lockdown since Saturday That means that we can’t leave our home, we can’t legally be on the street Unless you are going to grocery shopping, you have to go to the doctor, or you have to go to work Otherwise, we’ve been told to stay home, the whole country all of Spain is staying inside these days trying to beat this virus I was expecting this lockdown, so we were ready to come here, to my parents, to stay with them while this lockdown lasts, because at least as you can see we can get out, this is the backyard We can breath some fresh air here, instead of being stuck in an apartment I’ve been trying to do some wildlife photography, luckily there’s a nest with a couple of storks right there right in front of the house I’m getting to know them very well, they know me by now as well, they are not scared of me anymore They don’t have name yet, but I’ll have to give them one I’ve been making some images of those storks and another couple of nests that are nearby This is one of the ways I’m dealing with this quarantine, not being able to go on any photography trip but I realize that I’m very lucky to be here The stork is flying away! Man, I’ve missed it! I need to go back to my chair so I don’t miss more of those moments Thank you so much for watching, and see you in the next one!
