A few more before the girls come back

Yes, they land soon and my time in the forest will be practically over. Not a bad thing, I had to remove a tick from my leg last night, it is the season for crawly nasties now. Roll on winter!

Spring in the air.

Finally this year after never seeming to find anything, I found  GSW nest, with GSWs in residence! Then I found a further three, unfortunately not very photographically situated. I have spend many amazing hours watching, over a number of days the chicks get bolder and stronger, practically jumping out now for their food. Unfortunately (?) here in Munich the sun has been out in force and the clouds scarce so the nest is overly dark and getting a good enough shutter speed often mean ISO1600 on the 7D...something I do not do lightly!!! Still suffering from a lack of DOF too, must try again early morning when there is at least some light in that direction.

Enough from me, here are the pictures.

It's the little things

So there I sat, waiting for imaginary badgers, surrounded by movement. Eventually as the light faded the movement became bolder and suddenly I was face to face with Stuart Little. But not just Stuart, his entire family and then some. All out to steal the peanuts left for the badgers, burried or not they found them. So I returned a night later, armed with flashes and set about trying to snap the fast, fury little fellas. At least they were willing to come out!

Post Africa blues

I realize it has been nine months or so since Kruger, but you never get over Africa, it pulls you back. To that end, and the fact I am at home sick still, I did more scraping.

Keep scraping....

Yes, still at home recovering, so decided to sort out some old shots which I need to convert to family albums (well photo books these days). Whilst sorting through a trip to France I found these I took in the Camargue 2010.

Postoperative blues

It has been a week since my nasal operation, a routine procedure but still I am recovering. Looks like it will take a while longer too, possible infection means a course of anti-bios and lots of warm nights. So all high on medication I decided to find some missed gems, I call it scraping the barrel, from Florida.
