Sven Zacek - Common can be beautiful

Sven Zacek - Common can be beautiful

Many times I have to respond to a request for a common species with the words: "I am sorry, I do not have pictures of (insert the species here)". If it was a request for wild wolves mating or howling towards the full moon, then I suppose there would be no shame in not having taken such photos. Yet. But if the request is for species like the crow, jackdaw, magpie, great tit etc, then I start wondering why haven't I taken pictures of these birds. I like birds and bird photography very much and these species are always in my sight. How is the story with you guys? Do you also have much more pictures of eagles, hawks, owls and other much harder to find speices, than of those that you see all the time?
