Took my mum and sister out to Stratford Upon Avon for the day, we went straight to the Butterfly Farm to get some photos. My sister is getting into photography now.
Nice day out, sadly the iguanas didn’t come down to pose for photos. I grabbed a few butterfly photos tho.
I definitely recommend Stratford Butterfly Farm for a photo trip. Get in early tho as it gets quite busy.
Kit I used
50MM Sigma macro lens
SB 600 flash for some of the photos, natural light if possible.
A nice Glasswinged butterfly (Greta oto)
Processing images from my India trip is going very slow, I put it down to the busy Christmas build-up and Modern Warfare 2, well mainly Modern Warfare 2.
Online multiplayer is very addictive, at the moment I’m playing it twice a day, I have to say it’s one of the best games I’ve ever played. I’ve been playing computer games since the days of Pong Tennis back in the 80′s. WOW have we come along way since then. I can now chat to my mates from around the UK on xbox live while running around a war zone like a crazed maniac with a M16 and commando knife, sometimes staying alive long enough to kill 10 plus enemies, then brought down by a 10 year old from the US, probably.
Well, back to the photos, today I’m uploading some nature photos taken from my trip to south India. Taken with Nikon D90 and a Nikon D70, with a mixture of lenses from my 18-70 to 70-300 mainly. Processed in Lightroom 2 and sharpened in Photoshop.
We did a jungle trek in Periyar, I managed to grab this photo of a tree snake. The jungle trek was amazing and hard work
We both walked about 10km that day, with wet shoes covered in leeches trying to get in our socks. Great experience, we saw some good wildlife that day.
Taken in the gardens of Fort Cochin Club.
We went for a paddle boat trip at dusk, I captured this bat flying above us. The photo doesn’t doesn’t show how big these guys where.
This cheeky monkey was taken at Athirapally waterfalls.
