You must be getting fed up with my kingfisher pictures but this
one I couldn't resist posting. The camera was accidently on the
wrong setting and it needed a bit of tweaking in P.S. to get any
sort of result.

A young heron flew straight towards me before veering away.


  1. Well, you've done it again Mike, these are just incredible shots, quite unique! I'm glad you managed to sort the kingfisher shot out, it's fabulous.:) Well done!

  2. Hi Mike .. I hope you are ok!!! Great birds and shots. Congrats and regards..

About Me

My photo
Evacuated during the second world war to a village in Yorkshire where I lived in the home of a good photographer for more than five years who taught me the basics and a great deal about nature. Well past retirement age I have been a wildlife photographer for more than 30 years. Red Kites have been my speciality for much of this period. I did spend several years snapping wheelchair athletes and organizing the British Road Race Championship. In the year 2000 I was awarded a distinction by the Royal Photographic Society for my portfolio on wheelchair athletes. Most of my pics are digital, using Sony cameras and Sigma lenses. I used to spend many weeks each year with friends in Wales which is close to the Elan Valleys where I got many of my raptor pics. I now get these pictures more closely to home, specially red kites and peregrines. I support my pension by selling my pics, cards, coasters, fridge magnets and key rings etc. at craft fairs, something I wish I had done much earlier in life. I give illustrated talks to clubs and societies on wildlife and other branches of photography that I have been involved in.
