This is how Michael Goltz titled his photo of this situation for the young storks. Both of us were lucky that we had a strong westerly wind when it started to pour and the sound hatch opened exactly in this direction and kept us and the lenses dry. Only the young storks lay pressed flat in the nest and let the shiver pass over them — patiently I almost want to say.
Meanwhile Michael and I thought about how we could capture the rain in the picture and had come up with the idea to push the ISO sensitivity down to get a bit longer exposure times. In the end this picture was taken with 1⁄160 second, which was a very long exposure time for 560mm focal length.
