Bengal Tiger

Pensive look from Blizzard the white Bengal tiger at Hamerton Wildlife Park.

Taken with 400mm lens so cage wires have been thrown out of focus but does gives a softness to the images that I like.

Sexuality in Flowers

Some favourite images from our trip to the Cambridge Botanic Gardens. I was experimenting with very shallow depth of field using 50 macro lens with life size converter. This was forced on me as I went without the plate for the tripod so couldn't risk higher aperture settings. I particularly like the first image which is a member of the ginger plant family.

Bath city

Took short stroll up the hill to the park. Bath looked great in the evening light. Enlarged part of the scene to show test how sharp the photo was and am pleased with result.

Autumn at Westonbirt

There were more visitors than trees at Westonbirt this afternoon. The Acers are probably just about at their best with a combination of greens, yellows and reds.

The image below was done by placing the camera on the ground with the fish-eye looking upward at the canopy. I used the timer facility but I had to move quite quickly to get out of the picture.

Fungi in Epping

The recent rain has resulted in a 'bloom' of toadstools in Epping Forest. The Fly Agarics and the Porcelain Fungi are two of my favourite species so I was happy to spend a long while photographing them today. I even tried the Porcelain in infrared!

Very impressive sunset this evening - impressed by the change in colour temperature within only 10 minutes as the sun went further below the horizon.
I then turned to photograph the full moon and did not realise that I had two birds flying across the face of the moon till I downloaded the image .

Common Blue Butterfly

Returned home today and was greeted in the garden by this beautiful and very obliging Common Blue butterfly on a matching Gallardia.
