The Feeling of HAPPINESS

Every now and then I get a feeling that rushes through my body.

I can’t explain it.

It’s like I am ready to explode from inside, with a feeling of being really happy.

I feel like a kid again doing daft things, singing as I ride my scooter round the park, feeling full on with people trying to tell them everything I am doing and the joy I get from it.

Making my Beautiful wife Ruth breakfast in bed like I did for seven years before my two injuries stopped me doing it.

It’s like I can see the light in the tunnel I played in years ago.

But all that said, I get a feeling that something will happen and bring me back down to earth. I don’t know why I feel like that, but it’s hard to shake off.

So, I calm down and just enjoy the moment. Waiting for the rush to start again – if it does.

Have you felt that feeling recently? It’s priceless.

I am 63 years old and and since a boy have had an interest in wildlife and in particular birds. I help my Dad with the rearing of young finches and other birds. I had many small birds as pets and as i got older and joined the Military i purchsed my first Camera, and fold out Kodak. Over a 22 year period i enjoyed many countries outside the uk and observed many species of birds. When i left the military in 2000, i bought my first digital camera a Canon 450D with a Tamron 70-300 and started my journey on capturing images of birds and animals. I quickly learned that there was a lot more to getting a good image of a bird, so i started to research the best settings for my camera in order to capture a better image. Over a 12 month period i realised that needed to invest in a better camera and lens and after research bought a Canon 50D and a 100-400 Lens. It was 2013 when i really got to grips with the setup and came across a lovely Short Eared Owl. From that meeting i started to concentrate on Owls as they fasinated me. From Canon to Olympus i recently jumped ship again to Sony. The variety of birds i have captured over a 10 year period is vast and at present i have a wildlife hide in lancashire where most of my images are captured.
