Ever wondered what a wet Kestrel looks like running in the rain?

Wonder no more...

I am delighted to announce that my image of a Kestrel has been awarded

BIRD PHOTO OF THE YEAR 2014 by BIRDGUIDES.

There were around 325,000 bird images uploaded to www.birdguides.com over the last year, so for mine to be chosen from such a large pool is personally very rewarding.

Well done to all of the runners up and Highly Commended photographers and thanks to Birdguides and their judges for organising this competition.
Full details can be found here:- http://bit.ly/1AmTDKx

This image was in fact one of the very first images I took whilst testing and fine tuning my Canon 7D MK2 camera . It was coupled to a Canon 800mm lens when this picture was taken.

I have not long returned from a few days photographing Dalmatian Pelicans on Greece.

Beautiful birds in my humble opinion...

They say lightening doesn't strike twice...

Well this is the second time in seven years that I have had six wild Cheetah cubs in front of my lens.

I am still working on #Kestrel   images. 

I don't find it easy to get this type of image 'critically' sharp. I seem to send so many 'nearly' pictures to the recycle bin...

Enjoy your Sunday...

Just typical ! I sent my Canon 1DX away today to have an "autumn" clean. So what happens this evening? 

The Kestrels that I have been working on for several months decide to fly beautifully towards a setting sun...

Thankfully I had my 1D MK4 to hand which captured this image.

Enjoy your weekends everyone.
