Photographer's Note

Let op! = Watch out (Dutch)

I took this amazing photo, walking around in the fields near Breukelen, Utrecht area, NL.

Thanks to my camera starting time less than 1 sec, I was able to capture this incredible moment when a mother duck with her ducklings were crossing a country road in front of a moving van.

As soon as I took the photo, I literally stepped into the situation, jumping to the middle of the road, forcing the van to slow down, thus giving ducklings enough time to finish this risky journey.

P.S. Just before that shot I was 'hunting' over flying helicopters. That's why the settings were left 'as it is' - I obviously did not have any moment to change them.
