According to Wikipedia "Bar-tailed Godwit makes the longest known non-stop flight of any bird and also the longest journey without pausing to feed by any animal, 11,680 kilometers along a route from Alaska to New Zealand." This is shockingly amazing and so extraordinary!

My name is Nickolay Tilcheff.
I am an animator and wildlife photography is something that I enjoy in my spare time.

For about three years, 2007 - 2009, many of my better photos used to get published on this bloG. Due to frequent abuse of the images and a few other reasons I have decided to take a long (or indefinite) break from blogging.
