    Emley Moor television mast

    Hairy caterpillars are bloody fast!

    Osprey webcam - Loch Arkaig

    Thanks for posting the link. When it took off, one of the two remaining chicks looked up as much as to say “where did he/she go”

    photographing garden birds

    In addition to the manual focus suggestions one other thing you may like to consider using autofocus. Rather than limiting your choice of AF points to the centre/group is to activate all of them.
