Fist time in a hide.

Finally got myself a 150-600 Sigma and these are some of the results from its first outing. It's a steep learning curve and so different from shooting a static model in a studio!
The first is a Siskin, fairly common bird in certain parts of Scotland and the other is the Siskin showing just how aggressive it can be, seeing off a Chaffinch...

Tried my hand at some bird shots

I never really shoot wildlife but I was out for a walk and had my 55-200 mm fuji lens with me when I saw these birds sitting in this beautiful tree. I really like them for just an impromptu bird shoot, I think I'll go back this week and try again.

This experience helped shape the way I view wildlife photography and the ethics I follow every time I recreate in...

I feel so lucky for this - one of the best days of my life

Yesterday I woke up earlier than usual and could not sleep further.

The mindset I had while snapping this image was to make it as natural as possible for the viewer while striking a...

A mother monkey expressing her unblemished and caring love towards her child

At Katagamuwa sanctuary - Sri Lanka, I got a chance to witness a mother monkey expressing her unblemished and caring love towards her child. Humans aren't the only living beings on this planet that are capable of showing love and compassion. We can find much greater love and compassion in the wild as this picture depicts. This pure motherly...
