My motto is, when something works, just do it to the death! 🙂 🙂
A nice dive
Yep, I have change the setup. This morning, I had three hours spare so I went to my hide and had a go at it. It the only way to find out what is wrong with the setup. They are a few things that I have to change.
For a first go, I was quite pleased with the results.
This bird has got a bullhead in his bill.
A few action shot
And to end, a bit of Arty farty… 🙂 🙂
The Kingfisher is probably one of the most charismatic bird in Britain. Incredible colours and bad tampered! 🙂
I wanted to photograph kingfisher fishing. So I setup my own hide . Yes, I could have dished out £ 150.00 and go in one of those paying hide thing..
But I wasn`t interested. I wanted to do my own thing. I like to setup my hide , go on recce etc…
It just take some time. But the reward are extraordinaire, if it works of course.
Boy did it work! At the moment, I have four different birds. They are chasing each other, fishing, fighting, calling etc.. . It`s amazing to watch ….
These pictures were taken in two photographic session. This is a work in progress of course …will see what happened next…
I got a kingfisher on a perch and I was very happy
The next challenge was to get the bird in flight…not easy…
I was over the moon with those pictures but I wanted more…
This male is going down like a rocket. the speed is amazing
Coming out of the water with his prize.
Just before eating his prize
There is a place about 5 miles from my home where there is a pair of barn owl. They have been there for years. The best way to photograph them is from the car. Early ..very early in the morning.
Three time the birds flew…From post to post….
I like the light on this one, lovely
The one that got away…Unfortunately the owl flew away from me. I can only think what would the picture had been if it had come towards me…
Yet again, I was at my woodland hide this morning. I am trying to take lot`s of different picture containing flowers. Because the will be gone soon….
The light became too strong very quickly…
A great spotted woodpecker was so close…I just photograph his head!
A robin used my Sparrowhawk perch…
