    Dry Sandford Pit

    A couple from last weekend at Dry Sandford Pit. Stream through the woods Rock in a pool. Both 5x4 images with the Intrepid 5x4 on FP4+.

    1st spider of the year

    Things are starting to wake up. This afternoon, was the first time I've seen activity in the bees' nest in the wall opposite my office window. It's a west-facing wall so got some good Sun today.

    I can see you .......

    A nice capture, but (at the risk of offending against the old warning about pots & kettles) I would say that the focus distance seems to be on the branch rather than the bird.

    Don McCullin: Looking for England on BBC 4

    Also an interview with him & Giles Duley in the Guardian a few days ago: https://www.theguardian.com/artanddesign/2019/feb/03/don-mccullin-giles-duley-photography-retrospective-tate-interview
  6. I don't think it's browser specific. I actually haven't seen it since returning to Firefox from Vivaldi.

    Little Grebe big Perch

    Even with a relatively small fish they will still take their time to make sure it is well and truly dead before swallowing it. I guess a spiny fish starting to wriggle in your throat is not a good idea!

    Little Grebe big Perch

    That is a big fish for a little bird, did it manage to swallow it? I've seen people surprised when a G-C grebe manages a perch that isze.

    Just for fun, here is the gull at full res.

    I only noticed it after I had posted it. Looking at the full-scale image it is in fact a gull

    At Farmoor reservoir a couple of years ago, I found it while looking for something for the weekly challenge -- pity I didn't find it a few weeks back!

    The reflections and cracks in the surrounding bark make it look like some monstrous creature emerging from the mud.
  13. There does seem to be an inverse correlation between size and skittishness for birds in the garden. When I was in New Mexico, the hummingbirds would be on the feeder before I'd finished hanging it up, but corvids on both side of the pond are very jumpy (well they are supposed to be among the most intelligent birds). I think I agree with Rye about number two.
