Hutovo blato- the unique wildlife of the Bosnian-Herzegovinian Amazonia- II part

After my first photo safari trip in Hutovo blato described in the first part of my wildlife blog, two more trips followed, second one in the summer of 2021 and the third one in the May 2022. During my second visit to Hutovo in the summer of 2021, there were no similar activities and events compared to the summer of 2018. The water level was low and the atmosphere calmer, as if all the inhabitants of Hutovo instinctively hid in […]

RAMSKO LAKE – Where the Eagles Fly Early

The mouth of the Neretva river into the Adriatic – the place where an emerald river kisses the sea

For a long time I have had the desire to visit the mouth of the Neretva into the Adriatic Sea.

Of course, an additional motive is that this area is rich in birds, so I have been searching for the satisfaction of my insatiable spirit of a wildlife photographer. The Neretva […]
