    WOW...your bird photography is superb...i'm not generally a bird photography fan (not that I don't appreciate the effort that goes into getting the shots) but your work really appeals to me!
    Great job with this!

    you have been taking some super birdy photos whilst I was languishing amongst packing boxes, bubble wrap and web-less. How ya doing, you and yours, my friend ?
    I have a heap of cleaning etc to do, cant say the cottage was spotless upon our moving in, lets say the previous owner was a keen cook, who didnt believe in cleaning...... mmmm, nice, sugar soap works well though !!
    I dont recommend downsizing much either.... its like trying to get a gallon into a pint pot, plus we had already got rid of heaps of stuff !
    Catch up properly soon, all the best

    Thanks :)
    Hey you :P
    Yeah been busy with the birds that's for sure (400mm lens does come in handy). Much more fun than cleaning up someone else's built-up cooking mess!
    Dog tired, just got back from hols (1000km drive in one day to get home), also got a full weekends event shooting tomorrow and Sunday.

    I think I have a new favourite bird image from you. This one is incredible. Loving the colours in the sky and how the wings are lit up.

    'twas a first for me - hadn't seen Spoonbills in the wild before.
