The bird lies injured, the glass broken the jigsaw missing a piece, engine exhausted, no wind for the kite. Sapped of all energy, windmill still, the grass white no rain, rivers dry rocks exposed.

Withering flower, wheel no rotation, trapped in the rock pool, beached whale. Darkness no light,

Rise now injured bird reach out with your wings fly with the the lost jigsaw piece, flap your wings bring wind for the kite. Let me take your strength and be strong again, we can turn the windmill again make the clouds rain and lie on the now green grass.

Fly up the river to break the dam releasing the water for life to flourish again.

Small now tall, weak now strong, hope to glory, hands still no wood just wine, its now your time.

The injured bird now a Golden Eagle, you are admired my others, you Inspire people, bring laughter, love and happiness. Reach for the stars take a new challenge, conquer it.

Your back with a Bang.

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.
