On Thursday and Friday we took a couple of trips to nearby North Weald Airfield. It was a busy flying day, with some aircraft using the location as a base from which they took part in the Clacton Airshow.
These are some of my shots from the visits.
MiG – 15
Departing DH Vampires
All taken on the Olympus EM-1 and processed in Lightroom. The B-25 image was further processed in Photoshop.
Yesterday we visited Knole House in Kent, a National Trust property with a large deer park.
The deer were certainly not upset by the presence of so many people around them, although I still don’t understand why people insist on feeding the animals when notices all around the site ask you not to!
These are my favourite images from the day.
Fallow Deer Group
Fallow Deer Portrait
Both taken on the Olympus EM-1 with a telephoto lens at the 300mm end ( or thereabouts ). No tripod, but I did use a monopod for some additional stability.
Another image from RSPB Lakenheath.
This is- I believe – a female Brown Darter, and she was busily engaged ( apparently ) in laying her eggs in the mud around the edges of a shallow pond.
As always, ID is ( almost ) everything, so if I’ve got it wrong, please let me know.
Last weekend a group of us from our local camera club went to the RSPB site at Lakenheath in Suffolk. Not too many birds – but a lot of butterflies.
Here’s a selection ….
Green Veined White
Butterfly ID is always an issue for me – so I’ve done the best I can. If I’ve got any ( or all ) wrong, I’m sure you’ll let me know.
All taken on the Olympus EM-1 with either a macro lens or ( mostly ) with a telephoto lens around the 250-300mm mark.
