The last few Northern Pintails remain, the majority having already returned to their breeding grounds.
Another year before these beautifully smart ducks will be back.

Having decided not to go out the other morning when the fire alarm went off at 5:30 in the house we are staying in I decided that I may as well go out, and I am glad I did.

In hindsight I would have liked a slightly wider angle, but I was constrained by primes and the edge of the lake. C&C very welcome and encouraged.

Wild Wagler's Pit Viper

Tropidolaemus wagleri. This is a juvenile male. On average I spend about a month each year in the bio-diverse tropical rainforest. This was taken during a trip focusing on herptiles last year. We worked exclusively at night when these animals are at their most active. Posting this one here as it was taken with an 18-35mm wide-angle, not macro. This is uncropped. To fill the frame, one has to get real close. When working with these highly venomous species, it's essential that protective gear is employed. Understanding the behaviour and body language of the subject is equally important.

Taking a drive out in the New Forset this morning and a couple of deer were walking through the undergrowth. Managed to fire off a few shots, was quite chuffed with this one as it seemed to know the exact pose I wanted.

First visit to WWT Slimbridge in over 5 weeks, following surgery.
Great to see the Water Rails still around despite the extensive intrusion to their habitat by the building of the new Estuary Tower.
Counted three birds this morning, including this character exploring the rat hole for residual seed from a feeder.

Been for a trip up north again for some hare and landscape photography, didn't do any landscapes as the weather was abysmal but did manage to photograph a hare in the snow so all was not lost :)
This is the first image pp, many more to go through

Pillars (Bellever forest)

There was only a hint of mist in the air so I ditched my plan to go Wistmans and went to Bellever Forest instead. Bellever has some clear areas of Pine but they are quite hard to find at times with new trees coming down on a regular basis. This was probably the best of the images that morning which was shot on the outskirts of the woodland with some soft sidelight hitting the front few trees.

Another image made on New Years morning. Another cliche shot really, but it was too nice to resist...

I drew a blank at my kingfisher on Tuesday, not even a sniff but that's how it goes. Next time.

So, with no new kingfisher images to process, I've been looking over old files. I can't believe this one was last May , taken on a walk with my Daughter.
