It’s always a great feeling when you see your images in print but even better when they are used as a front cover! The British Birds journal has used my Stonechat image for their May issue. This is such a great informative journal on all things avian and is a must read for any one with an interest.

Photographing butterflies is always better when they are less active. Choosing a cool summer morning was the best to photograph this Marbled White butterfly as it was still roosting on this Plantain seed head. The temperature had dropped below the dew point overnight causing the small droplets of water to form along the antennas of this individual.

Whilst waiting for bee-eaters to land on a perch in front of the hide, a Little Owl surprised me by landing on it instead. A little squeak from myself got it looking straight down the barrel of my lens, but it soon lost interest when it realised I wasn’t food. Great to see it at short range.
