Longing to film you again

O you Beautiful Owl how you make me so happy flying with graze across open fields, free you move in silence. I will return my Friend and watch you through my viewfinder once more, silent shutter so not to disturb your sensitive hearing and spoil your hunt.

When will I see you again, when will I lay in wait excitement building like a boy waiting for his birthday present. My settings tuned to capture your beauty, to show the world and inform people of your amazing life, hard times and Owlet family

I long for the summer nights when we can be together again, just you and me doing what we love, like in heaven you land in the tree next to me. Your head moving around in all directions trying to work me out. We sit for seconds but thats enough to fill my heart once again.

See you soon my old friend.

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.
