Old Pals

I walk through the field of gold wheat rays of sun lighting my way, my hands brush softly as I go. There’s no end to the field, Skylark so high singing my favourite song of love and happiness.

Eyes wide an aperture to capture the golden figure leaping with strong legs, mouth smiling my master my best buddy. Fur golden like the wheat eyes clear wide and full of life he makes his way towards me.

My slow walk gets quicker the into a run jumping excitement fills my heart and body as I make my way to meet my beloved friend.

The time is right as we both take flight our hearts meat crushing the golden wheat rolling together we embrace and hold each other tight an eternal bond never to be broken.

Another tongue licks my face its small but warm with love, little ears pricked up he gazes into my happy eyes filled with so much love for my best friends. We fight together the wheat rolling round we leave a heart shape in the wheat.

Running side by side Labrador and Jack Russell leap forward i jump with them our hearts leaping as one we disappear in the distance to where who knows.

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.
