It’s always an exciting moment to unpack a new lens. I then usually spend half a day thoroughly testing it. The test for my telephoto involved a walk to the park, and after 40 minutes I managed to find the deer.
My favourite photo from the afternoon is one of a doe jumping across a stream, with her fawn watching on. The fawn then got up the courage to follow its mother.
My second favourite shot was of two stags. I’d been creeping along by a stream, hidden by the trees, but finally got spotted…
I’m not a wildlife photographer in any way – as my miserable attempts at photographing birds in flight showed – much practice needed there I think! However, I do love nature, and it’s a joy to be able to remember the moments.
