The secret with these insects is that once you see one stick with it, they are rare and don’t stay around very long. I have recently been experimenting with a square 1×1 crop and find it quite helpful in highlighting the subject.

My photos continue to be copyrighted 2019, as that is the year I took them in. When I get out again I will change the date. This osprey is a large and imposing bird and predator, but not the prettiest of birds in the forest.

I stopped reading a book on photography tips when they said never take a photograph of flowers looking straight down. What rubbish. I say do what you think works best. It seems everyone has opinions but I like a more positive approach to advice.

I took thirty-two photographs of this butterfly. The first one here was the first one I took. After that the clouds moved, the butterfly moved and my natural soft lighting fell apart. In photography shoot first ask questions afterwards, you may never get a better chance.

In the fall, the forest floor is alive with great photographic opportunities, not least of which are all the fallen leaves. The only catch here is composition and the decisions on colour or black and white.
