This series shows the unique look at the two species of wild birds - a blue tit and a great tit. The first photograph shows the ground from a high perspective, with great tit's reflection in a puddle. The second photograph was taken from a very low perspective, under the ice. It shows the blue tit, while the background is a blue sky. These photographs are not photomontages. It is an unusual perspective, which places the bird in the centre of a "natural window" - the puddle or the hole in the ice.
