Continued from my last post. As with most islands the bird life on Galapagos is quite varied, from see birds like Blue Footed Boobies to Darwin finches that the island is so famous for. Darwin’s studies of the finches from some of the Galapagos islands helped contribute to his “theory of evolution by natural selection”…Details
For such an epic trip as visiting the Galapagos islands where you’re guaranteed to encounter wildlife found nowhere else on the planet, naturally, I toyed with the idea of buying a longer telephoto lens than my 70-200mm. I thought a 80-400mm would allow me to get closer to the action….. More expense, but it could…Details
We’d been planning a wildlife trip to South America for some time; first looking at Costa Rica, then at Panama, before settling on Ecuador – one of the most biodiverse places on the planet! Country chosen, trip thoroughly planned and it was time to embark on our #holidayofalifetime adventure…After a 14 hour flight we finally…Details

While in Bulgaria we were driving along the road and noticed some interesting birds sitting on a telegraph poll, we pulled over to see a pair of Red-footed Falcons (Falco vespertinus). This is the first time we have seen these birds. We watched them hunt for about 20mins and I grabbed some photographs. I couldn’t…Details
Before our trip, a holiday to Bulgaria would’ve filled my other half with more trepidation than excitement. On the other side of our week’s personal tour of the western Rhodope region, we both can’t recommend this place (or our guide) enough. From the moment a lesser spotted eagle soared overhead as our car fled…Details
Its been a cold start to 2014, but it doesn’t seem to have been as cold as other years.
We have had no snow at all, lots of rain tho .
On one of the rare occasions I had my camera handy I captured this Goldfinch resting in the bushes.
Its been some time since I’ve posted on my photo blog. We moved house late last year and work has been busy, only managed to pickup my camera a few times in the last couple months. Early December 2013 morning I managed to capture this lovely Sparrow Hawk perching on the apple tree in the…Details
