Welcome

Welcome to my galleries of mainly birds.
I started taking photos a few years after starting to watch birds and other wildlife when I retired.I am now using three cameras: a Canon 1D mark 4, a Canon 5D Mark 3 and a Canon 7D mark 2.
Recently I traded in my Canon 300mm f/2.8 mark 2 and the 400mm f/4 DO mark 1 to buy the Canon 400mm f/4 DO mark 2. This lens is really sharp, works well with extenders and is relatively light as well as being of short length. Together with the Canon 100-400mm mark 2, the Tamron 150-600mm G2 and the two Canon extenders this will complete my lens "stable" for photographing birds and other wildlife

In early 2017 and 2018 we had good holidays in The Gambia with the usual great photo opportunities.
Our most recent holiday was on a mammal / bird safari to the Okavango Delta in Botswana. Absolutely excellent with wonderful photographic opportunities providing a Botswana gallery showing a few of the photos I took.
