Common Blue Damselfy

A common blue damselfly gladly displaying a little bit of patience for me which is a very unusual event.  All taken, hand held, with a Nikon D750 and my trusted Tamron 90mm macro lens.

Gold Macaws

A few shots of Gold Macaws taken at Cassiobury Farm near Watford in Hertfordshire.  As we could get up close with the macaws, I used a macro lens to capture both the colours and intricate details of these easy going birds.

Ashridge Estate – Bluebells

I have taken photos of bluebells in the past but only whilst ambling round the countryside.  Therefore, I decided to visit National Trust Ashridge which claims to be one of the best places in the UK to see bluebells – I was not disappointed: Dockey Wood,  part of the estate, has vast swathes of bluebells, both out in the open and within treelines of the surrounding woodland.  I now understand why Ashridge estate is so popular, in particular the stunning bluebells.  All shots taken with a Nikon D750 and 90mm macro, 24 -70mm and 70-200mm lenses.
