pied flycatcher

My name is Claude Martin. I live near Basel, Switzerland. I’m not a professional photographer, I just like to take pictures of birds and other animals that I encounter on my adventures. I am not trying to win any prizes. Photography is just a hobby. I’m not a blogger or vlogger but this blog makes it easier for me to share my pictures with friends.

When I’m out I always travel by train, foot and bicycle (gravel, fat). I usually spend a night in the woods using a hammock.
