It's in my blood.
Since I was given my first camera, when I was a little kid, I have always been fascinated by capturing in a shot what my eyes were seeing around me. The beauty of nature or the smile of a friend, an event or an emotion... Precious pearls to be framed in a photo. Whether freezing a movement or moving the stillness, looking at normality through a different angle or portraying the exceptional, I can choose different perspectives, I can catch reality. I think this passion is in my blood, I inherited it from my Grandpa and then from my Dad, and it has always had a great influence in my life. Come and follow me in my journey searching impressions of life.

Another Nice Little Fellow

The thing I like about the tits is that they are usually going around in packs, many different species all together giving the opportunity to shoot different birds. And with them it's not unusual to spot also Nuthatches and Treecreepers. The Nuthatch resembles a small woodpecker and it's a very peculiar bird, especially for the way he moves on trees. In fact, it's common to see it "walking" down, head-first, along the tree side. Also, the way it poses with the head pushed out it's typical.

Last summer I was able to shoot a different species in California. While the most similar to our European version is the Red-breasted Nuthatch – it just have a white area above the eye black stripe – the one I shot is the White-breasted Nuthatch. You can see it below.
