Since I became a freelance photographer, I have been visiting RSPB, Wildlife trusts, nature groups and camera clubs presenting my work in the form of digital slideshows.
I have just updated a new page for this blog purely for details on my talks.
If you know of any group within the UK (or abroad) who is after any speakers for your clubs then please ask them to get in touch. They can get in touch with me directly here: http://www.ianbutlerphotography.co.uk/contact.php
Details of the talks I offer can be found on my talks page at the right hand side of the header above or if you want to go straight to the link please click here:
Looking forward to hearing from you. 😉
Well, todays image, number 096, brings me back up to date with my 365 project, and I’m not sure who’s shocked the most, me or this Spur-winged Plover. 😉 (which is taken from a low view point! 😉 )
Spur-winged Plover (lapwing), Vanellus spinosus, Kenya.
Image 095, is an African Jacana. and what a cool looking bird. Its legs and feet are huge and because of this evolutionary trait spends most of its time walking across the top of floating water vegetation such as Lily’s (where it gets its local name from of Lily-trotter!)
African Jacana, Actophilornis africanus, Kenya.
Getting low down is the only way to go sometimes. Shooting this nightjar from above would have been impossible as I wouldn’t have been able to approach this bird from a standing position. I decided to get down low and commando crawl up to this bird that I spotted perched next to the road whilst I was in Kenya. The red eye is a result of the reflection of the flash from my camera…. should have used red eye reduction mode 😉
Montane Nightjar, Caprimulgus poliocephalus, Kenya.
