Great holmertz 2019-11-27 10:40

Hello György,
I remember wondering, when looking at this guy's photos, how they were taken. The same thought comes to me now, seeing the kingfisher and the snake "face to face" with the bird looking so abnormally large. But the question becomes less important when seeing that photo along with your photo in the darkness of the Miskolc square. The exotic nature seems to be right above the girls' heads, sharing the same space. And their pink coats create a marvellous contrast to the green animals. It's really a bit surrealistic, and since i have always enjoyed surrealism I will have to add this to my favourites.
Best wishes,

Dear Gert,

I remember that we talked about it under the first picture, namely the bit surrealistic (or unrealistic) nature of these photos. I told you that a friend of mine (a biologist/ethologist) had said to me that some of his photos are (to say the least) arranged. This was the particular photo he cited as an ample example. In his view that bird would never go that close to a snake in the wildlife. Most probably the bird, which didn't grow up in the wild - thus don't know that he should fear of the snake - was somehow motivated to go there. And maybe the snake too, was fed before, so he didn't feel it necessary to eat the bird.

Best Wishes,

PS: Thank you very much for your kind words and for faving it of course!
