My adventure with nature photography began many years ago, I took my first photographic steps with the Zenit 12XP camera, with of course a fifty milimeter Helios lens. Alternately I used a Soviet mirror-lens MC 3M-5CA 500/8 for wildlife (sounds serious, right?). I spent several years with this equipment in the field. Then there was a break in my activity as a photographer, ended by purchase my first digital SLR. Then, I replaced the telescope to a camera again. Maybe not so literally, because still, before I pack the camera into my backpack, and I disappear somewhere with it - the telescope is invaluable support in observing wildlife from afar, without disturbing it. Such preparation gives me the opportunity to plan my activities, without disturbing the natural course of wildlife. Pictures of a natural, undisturbed wildlife is the most valuable in this art for me.

       "I think that among the two-footed, rational beings of our Earth, we will not meet anyone, who didn't know what birds are and who didn't have the opportunity to watch them closely. However, there are probably a lot of people who look at them with apathy and don't recognise the beauty of their shapes, grace of movements, and variety of colors, they don't think about their wonderful flying properties, they don't realize their role in nature and also in our lives. " Włodzimierz Puchalski "Birds of our fields of meadows and waters" 1979.

       "By the road leading from the forest to the village, among the fields and meadows, there was a row of crooked, lopsided willows. We often passed that way and often, at dawn, we heard a call coming from the willows:" Voodoo, voodoo, voodoo "... Then a different voice answered: "Hoop, hoop, hoop"... In the first days of May, at almost any time of the day, one could hear these calls. But none of those passing by this route, paid attention to these voices. Everyone knew that voice well and he didn't really wonder who issued it - whether a bird or a frog or what other animal. And you know what it calls? - I asked Wacek. It's a hoopek - my comrade replied expertly. What is this "hoopek"? "I kept asking. You never saw?" The boy was surprised. "It is such a bird with a big tuft. And he stinks very much, because it eats a cow dung on the pasture..." Włodzimierz Puchalski "Bloodless Hunt" 1953.
