This is another landscape from my trip to Skomer Island. A few of us walked over to Skomer Head to shoot the sunset with the beautiful pink thrift flowers creating a fantastic foreground. I used in camera HDR (high-dynamic-range) to create this photograph merging three images to capture all the details in both the highlights and shadows.

This is a photograph I took earlier in the year at a captive mammal sancturary. The harvest mouse is the smallest british rodent, they are intelligent and highly opportunistic. They are active both during the day and at night, although most activity occurs between dawn and dusk. I used a wide aperture to take this photograph isolating the focus on the subjects eyes and emphasising its camouflage with its surroundings.

Its unusual to see a photograph of a puffin in black and white, but I decided for this shot it actually worked better than a colour alternative. I have seen many photographs over the years in the wildlife photographer of the year competition that choose a close crop to frame their subject rather than the obvious portrait, and was inspired by these works. It was nice to try something a bit different, hope you like it and feedback is always appreciated!

Just to give you all a break from the puffins, heres a photograph I took of a wild rabbit out on Skomer island earlier this month. The island has a really high population of rabbits and they provide a key part in many of the food chains on the island. You can see more puffin photography tomorrow and on my website -- www.stephaniefoote.com

A puffin standing in a sea of bluebells. Another shot from my recent trip; I visited Skomer Island on a wildlife photography trip with the university at the start of June, I was lucky with the timing as we were still able to photograph the fantastic flowers from late May that were in bloom, these flowers add colour to the wildlife portraits I took during my time there.

A puffin sat in its burrow. I was really lucky with this photograph as the sun was low in the sky in the afternoon casting light straight down this puffins burrow enabling me to get the perfect exposure! This is probably one of the photographs I am most pleased with it is crystal sharp and the burrow itself acts as a nice frame around the subject and shows another side to the species life, one which not everyone realises!

The puffins are distinct in their ability to transport several fish at a time, crosswise in their bill rather than regurgitating food for their chicks. This adaption allows them to take longer foraging trips and increases their young's chances of survival.

The sunset as seen from Skomer Head, on my recent trip to the island off the coast of Pembrokshire with the university. It was a fantastic opportunity for nature photography, not just the abundant bird life but the numerous flowers and stunning landscapes make great subjects for photography! I created this image using in camera HDR (high-dynamic range) which allowed me to capture as much detail as possible in the shadows and highlights within the frame. It was incredibly windy and quite a challenge to keep the camera steady but my sturdy tripod just about coped with the conditions!

I recently arrived home from Cornwall to spend the summer in Cambridgeshire with my family. Around my home the landscape is very different and it is significantly more urbanised, but there is still some remarkable nature to be seen and photographed. Yesterday evening I went on a walk with my father beside the main road out of my village. There is a fantasic field of poppies (Papaver rheas) which make a beautiful but fleeting subject to photograph. Along the way I also spotted a hare in a field of onions and a few skylarks singing above us as we walked. Although poppies are a common plant across Europe, the agricultural intensification that followed the second world war has had a definite impact on the species. Fields continue to get bigger and the wild margins are lost, causing habitat loss which has been another factor in their decline. Poppies are adapted to grow on disturbed soil, but modern farming techniques mean the soil is often worked too intensively, or not grazed at all, neither of which provide the conditions this species need to thrive. Although there are many threats to the poppies their seeds can spend up to a hundred years dormant underground waiting for the perfect conditions to grow once again. I photographed the poppies an hour before sunset and then again as the sky became increasingly dramatic and colourful.
