A spot of 'Twitching'


It's at times like this I'm really glad I carry my camera with me most of the time (geek alert!). Shame I don't have a powerful tele lens though.

Caught this magpie perched atop a tree this evening and took several shots. After some heavy cropping I came up with this image. It's far better than I'd anticipated.

I hope to capture more local flora and fauna later on in the year. I've not been able to capture any of the local rabbit or grey squirrel population, they're a bit nervous around these parts. You'd have thought living amongst traffic noise and vehicles they'd have gotten quite cocky. Still, one day I hope to bag an image of the infamous Stanislav Squirrelowski.

Ta ta for now pop pickers. Not 'arf.

I come across your blog and find it very interesting. You have captured an image of real beauty here I find! The patterns found in the branches are stunning, and the nest of birds is a great focal point, it is a real Parthian shot, I really like it well done.

I personally use a Nikon D70s with a 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5 DX lens, if your ever looking to go for something a bit more specialized go for this camera or a Canon of a similar spec you really can't go wrong with these camera's Johnny, although you are over achieving with what you have.

Magpie! Being a geordie, it makes me think of Newcastle United!
Done well to capture this without a tele lens!

If I may Johnny, I would like to set you a little photographic assignment. I want you to take a picture of an everyday houshold object and turn it into a work of art, just like I have done in my latest post. Good luck! It's not as hard as you may think.
