White_Tailed_Eagle.jpg

White Tailed Eagle

All these were taken in August 2011 on the Isle of Mull. The eagle pictures cost me a trip on a wild life boat cruse ( three hours).

The otter pictures were a chance meeting along the side of the loch when this otter decided to be an absolute tart and pose for me on the rocks, I managed about five hundred exposures of which I am spoilt for choice.

A memorable encounter from both animals.

This picture has been altered by adding a blue sky background. The grey cloudy sky did nothing for the bird!

White-Tailed Eagle at Loch Na Keal on the Isle of Mull.

This bird circled the boat waiting for the skipper to throw a herring into the water.

Awesome is the only description I could think of, then and now!

Isle of Mull Otter #10

An Isle of Mull Otter, who when asked, got out of the water, rolled onto the sea weed and did several 'star' posing shots for me. I managed about five hundred shots before she got bored and went on her way.

Thank you Madam!

There was no competition, all the Heron needed to do was look at the Egrets and they would move away.

Daisy & Holly posing for the Christmas card. However, this final picture took ten Doggy Sausages chopped up into small bits plus me making 'strange' sounds that they don't normally hear.

That's why their heads are on the side in a quizzical pose!

After hauling my new 600mm lens around Dungeness RSPB site I collapsed into the Denge Hide and caught this cheeky Chiff Chaff sticking its head out of the scrub to the side of the hide.

The Fairy Falls.

This waterfall has no name shown on the map so I have given them one. I have seen them in full flood and almost dried up. Must be fairy magic!

This is me playing with a 10 stop ND filter and a PC lens while at the same time being attacked by the Scottish Highland Kamikaze Air Force and Some idiot was taking a picture of me taking this picture. I suppose I did look a twit in my Midge Net, Who cares? The little devils did not get me that time!

I have just taken delivery of a super 600mm lens and this was my first 'real' outing with it. I wanted to try photographing some Treecreepers I had seen at a local nature reserve. So I sat and waited and sure enough one came along. Not the best pictures I have seen but not bad for a first try with a new lens. This is one of two that I feel are worth putting on the web site.

Just off Greatstone is a great place to kite surf or so it seems, there were about fifty kites up along the coast from Greatstone to Littlestone. My first attempt at photographing a fast sport, but I am pleased with these pictures.

This particular photograph appeals to me as it shows humans trying to do what the Oyster Catchers do. A case of amateurs and consummate professionals!
