Saturday was a model shoot, Sunday, garden birds and butterfly’s. Yesterday was bank holiday Monday and I had arranged a trip to the local nature reserve to shoot water birds.
It was a cold wet but I packed the big guns, Nikon DLSR’s and 300mm f/2.8 telephoto lens as well as my big Gitzo series 5 tripod.
Despite walking round the lakes looking for subjects and spending a short time in the hide, I never got the telephoto out of its case. Still, wildlife is 99% patience.
