Mute Swan.

Recently my family has become interested in geocaching. This is a hobby that involves a lot of walking in different places and therefore a lot of photo opportunities for me :). Yesterday, me my mum, step dad and girlfriend went to try and find some caches in Arundel. The flooding there was very bad but a good day was had by all. As we were nearing the finish of our trip i cam across this Mute Swan swimming down what is usually a footpath, towards me. Once it reached the shallower parts of the path it stood up and stretched its wings allowing me to take this shot :).

Sika Hind, Sparsholt

I am lucky enough to attend sparsholt agricultural college which has some fantastic facilities. One of its most well appreciated assets are its herd of Sika Deer ( Cervus Nippon). They have had a herd of deer there for educational purposes for years, they are well looked after and well managed. You can usually get a half decent sighting across their enclosure to see them but this day they were a little closer than usual so i took the chance and got out my camera. So as not to waste time i used the automatic mode and this was the result :).

Swallow take off! - Wild Bird Wednesday

I took this photo when on a field trip to studland bay near Bournemouth. Me and one of my tutors found ourselves in competition for a photo of this swallow taking off, one of the last to migrate from brittain that year. I am yet to see his photo.

I took this photo through a fence in my back garden, waking up after an afternoon enjoying the sun earlier this year.
