Thank you a lot Maria, it's a way for me to make my photographs more useful.
Also writing articles to explain people about wildlife and the importance of preserving it.
I'm happy to add my tiny contribution to Project Noah :)

Thank you so much a lot Fyn Kynd!
Honestly, I was far to think about that when I was taking the shot.
I was "walking" on my knees for 20min, in a mix of mud and snow, with a strong cold wind, stopping every time he was looking in my direction.
When he left later, I stood up, I had two thick icy knee protections pasted on my pants ^^
So I'm glad and honored that you noticed this spotting :)
Take good care of yourself, and thank you Project Noah!

Your spotting has been nominated for the Spotting of the Week. The winner will be chosen by the Project Noah Rangers based on a combination of factors including: uniqueness of the shot, status of the organism (for example, rare or endangered), quality of the information provided in the habitat and description sections. There is a subjective element, of course; the spotting with the highest number of Ranger votes is chosen. Congratulations on being nominated!
