Birds are symbols of freedom and charity and are worthy of respect. Our planet is in crisis, wars, epidemics and natural disasters threaten our lives. All living beings are affected by our use of the world's resources, especially birds.There are still around 10,000 species of birds worldwide, and every day there are fewer. They disappear almost silently, too quiet to be heard worldwide.But just look how beautiful they are: Unique in its design. And in character. Unique flying items. And they depend on how we treat our environment and how much respect we have for them.

I have been a freelense photographer for over 25 years. Photography has given me a good life, valuable encounters with people and places that I would never have known without this profession.
