The End of the Silver Trail

On 1st November, I finally acquired the last of the accepted pictures I needed to apply for my EFIP/silver. These are the final seven images of 2017. Now the long wait until June 2018 until I can start entering Salons again in a bid for Gold!
From the top left, clockwise: The Cheat Unmasked, Shady Lady, Hidden Charms, Double Trouble, Painted Lady, Rebel Without a Cause and Reed Warbler in the Reeds.

Some days just shine …

This is Hello, Old Friend, a picture I shot quite a few years ago and a firm favourite of mine. Today, the guys from Attenborough Nature Reserve asked if they could feature it in an article in the Nottingham Evening Post this Saturday. Of course they can!

And, on the same day, a request from BBC Radio Nottingham to feature this picture of a grey heron, again taken at Attenborough Nature Reserve, on their website, as part of the daily round-up. Of course they can!
