New book about Dadia reserve in Greece

Just received a book published by WWF Greece, which includes a
selection of scientific papers regarding the famous Dadia raptor reserve
in North-eastern Greece.
It is actually a systematic presentation of all studies carried out on this area
over the last 20 years.
I was privileged to be commisioned to illustrate this book.
All of the drawings have been done using a simple BIC ballpoint pen.
Attached, few of the illustrations.....

Tawny owl & Duck studies-Nymphenburg Park

After weeks of snowfalls, stormy winds and darkness the sun is back! It was a sunny but a very cold day today, with temperatures below and around zero..

On my way back to the car I spotted in the small half-frozen lake in the front of the Palace among many Tufted & Pochard ducks, a Ferruginus duck, a real rarity for Germany...
