Bruno D'Amicis - Surprise
After 2013 had been a massive mast year in the Apennine beech woods, 2014 is consequently a year of rodent invasion. This, in turn, will affect positively all medium-size carnivores and birds of prey that had successful and abundant reproduction. So, the woods are teeming with foxes, owls, buzzards. Such cycles take place every 4-6 years and are an amazing experience. Here, a bank vole, pops out of its hole between the roots of a century-old beech tree.
Location: Abruzzo, Italy
