SoaringI’m not much of a wildlife photog­ra­pher.  For a start I don’t have the patience I like to walk around and snap what I see, I’m not going to stay in one place, care­fully posi­tion­ing myself for the opti­mal shot and then wait­ing for some­thing to come fill the frame.

So while I often see wildlife on my week­end walks (deer and rabbits amongst others this week­end), I don’t often have good photos of it.

This shot is prob­a­bly about as good an action shot of a bird flying as I’ve ever taken. It’s limited by the zoom on my lens but on the other hand since I was hand hold­ing, I doubt I could have focused using a higher zoom.
