Nice, we had a redwing in the garden today but I didn’t manage to get a photo.

Nice action shot!

I finally made it to Gigrin Farm today. Hundreds of Red Kites as far as the eye can see

Love that last pic deadyankee.

I know Google is my friend but would you mind sharing what you took that with in terms of lens and shutter/apature? Coming into photography a bit late in life but trying to learn..

Not as dramatic but an early bluebell from Sunday <img src="https://gmzl4g.bn.files.1drv.com/y4mE1wWB6bGXZZICIq2Ha3Dg7z9LXIQYnMr1G9ATVL1kg3QnjKGRR_X-CS42cjJbQQPgWUxgt6ZzqOOwwB0Lg54l_r4LliWsZqXFriWDNJ790WCJjgt0o1f7YIGvoeqnyE0b5itudDDeZsv-S2EZxH8bvfoKC0HwBWhjAK3OlnsTXEglfENpACHNi9QgADss63h2-5LabXbnfOVUbGtwQrfNA?width=689&height=834&cropmode=none" width="689" height="834" />

It was using a full-frame canon 5D2 with a 200mm L lens plus a 2x converter. Handheld so set the camera shutter to lens length plus a bit (500 or 750th of a second) and let the aperture find itself. Adjust iso to ensure widest aperture is enough to get a proper exposure. Will post exact exit when I get a chance to check but I think it’s on Flickr if you click through

Nice bluebell btw

A few shots from the Highlands this week. It’s been a tough few days as my kid brother died suddenly while I was away but being in touch with nature helps dull the pain

Christ. Don't think there's an emoji for that. As always, Mas has the words - "Thinking of you."

Thanks. This site gave him opportunity to photograph a music festival so I cannot thank you all enough for that.

Oh crap, that's awful. So sorry for your loss DY.

(Lovely photos by the way. Haven't seen a Yellowhammer for ages.)

The spider and gnat are purely coincidental. I didn't notice the gnat until i looked at the photo at home and i was photographing an early purple orchid and the spider just appeared, I think its one of the jumping spiders as its furry and the petal is very small. The butterfly is a Green Hairstreak, also on the small side
