Photographer's Note

This is another picture I took on a nice spring day at the nature reserve called Kampina (in English: Campine).
And here's some more information about the Kampina from the internet:

Campine is a region which once consisted mainly of moor or swamp, heath and sandy peat. The Campine encompasses the east of Antwerp province (with Turnhout as the most important city), part of Limburg province in Belgium (a former coal-producing region) as well as part of Noord-Brabant, a Dutch province.
situated between Boxtel and Oisterwijk. The Kampina is a very wide heath- and bushland with lots of fens and exceeds over 1200 hectares. It's situated between Boxtel and Oisterwijk.

The name of the region is a distortion of the Latin Campinia or Campina, which means region of fields (campus means field). The inhabitants of the Campine region are called kempenaars. Many tales originated in the region, such as about the Goat riders (Dutch: Bokkenrijders) and about the gnome king Kyrië (Dutch: Kabouterkoning Kyrië).
