Salon acceptances

I have had two images accepted for the 2013 Bristol Salon of Photography - in the Nature section.

'Little egret with fish'

And my 'Perched Kingfisher'

Garganey at Teifi Marshes

This male garganey was being very co-operative in front of the Kingfisher hide:

This male has now been joined by a female and was last seen on the square pond near the car park.

Ring Ouzel at Mwnt

Managed to catch up with one of the ring ouzels at last. This is my first view of this bird - well worth the hours waiting - in the cold! Taken with my Canon 7d 500mm lens with 1.4 TC ISO400 f5.6 @ 1/800sec.
