LIGHT­NING STRIKES

Bird Watching (UK) - - Uk Bird Sightings -

Bence Máté is a na­ture pho­tog­ra­pher from Hungary, who has won count­less awards for his work. This strik­ing photo of forked light­ning across the hori­zon at night over a mixed flock of Spoon­bills and other wa­ter birds, was taken at Lake Csaj, Kiskun­ság Na­tional Park, Hungary. Bence said: “The first few light­ning bolts come in the lull, just be­fore the storm bursts out. The pur­ple colour of the im­age is a con­se­quence of the high fre­quency of the light. While the light­ning doesn't re­ally dis­turb the birds, the cam­era flash would scare them.” Visit matebence.hu
