Taken at our local RSPB reserve.
These birds are just beautiful!
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 ….
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.
With the New Year just around the corner I thought it would be worthwhile looking back and picking out my favourites from the 4,300+ images I’ve taken over the year ( more, actually – they are the ones I’ve kept! ).
So here is my January Favourite – a sika deer stag at RSPB Arne near Poole in Dorset.
He was definitely looking at me as I was looking at him!
