Artist Notes

Here on the island Ameland I get to enjoy one of the most jubilant experiences each spring: the male Eurasian skylark flies from the surface of the dunes almost straight up to where the only thing you’ll see is a little speck in the sky while performing a beautiful song for his mate. His beautiful warble will last for as long as he can hover in the sky, it seems sometimes it goes on forever! While it seems dangerous that the skylark build their nests on the ground, they are very well hidden. It takes about forty-five days from laying the eggs to having young that are able to fly.
