Mateusz Piesiak - The Feast Bramblings Sunflowers

The feast

Bramblings on a sunflowers field

Last year due to a high water level a giant field of sunflowers could not been mown. In winter it attracted thousands of different species of birds, mostly greenfinches, goldfinches and bramblings. At first glance, their colorful plumage do not help them survive and make them an easy target for falcons and hawks. However, when finches forage on the field, their colors perfectly blend with the surroundings, making them invisible to predators.


I decided to photograph them from their perspective. For this, I used a wide-angle lens, masked it with snow and dried sunflowers, and I left away with a remote trigger in my hand. After some time a whole flock of bramblings came just in front of my camera.
