  • More great shots in great light Alan!
  • Lovely additions Alan;    yesterday I tried to locate the local hares and found three in different areas, however, the minute they see a human from quarter mile away they bolt   !!!     these should be on bad pics thread but probably the only hare shots I'll ever get at this rate  lol

    (hard cropped shots and too far away to have sharp focus)

    It had already spotted me way back up the lane ………...

    and then the inevitable  ! ………….    run rabbit hare run   ………...

    I spotted this one on the corner of two lanes and crept up slowly but suddenly a car appeared from right hand side and the hare shot off into the cornfield   lol   

    this is all I managed to get as it grazed on the lush grass/weeds 

    Sigh  !   maybe next time  !!

  • Rapid little so-and so's aren't they! And may be hard cropped, but still better focussed than some of mine when I was in Yorkshire and they were just sat around nibbling the grass lol
  • A couple more pics from yesterday;

    juvenile Pied Wagtail

    very distant shot of a Hare and a Crow    - must be a story there somewhere  !   

    found another hare shot -  do they ever stand still for more than 2 seconds ?   lol

    equally distant shot of a common buzzard perched up

    male Common Darter  ?

    Starlings waiting for the non existent polo match to start    LOL

    one of the juvenile starlings keeping an eye on me and the camera !
