This article features a selection of hawk image rescue attempts that I did in post processing this morning. As regular readers will know I recently added Topaz Denoise AI to my standard post processing approach.
This short article features a selection of photographs of an Irish mallard in-flight. These were captured during our photography field trip to Ireland in the spring of 2019. While the main objective of our trip was to capture landscape and rural images, I took a Nikon 1 V3 fitted with a 1 Nikkor CX 70-300 mm f/4.5-5.6 with me just in case I had the opportunity to photograph some wildlife.
Yesterday morning I went out to photograph some ducks in flight. I decided to use a Nikon 1 V3 fitted with a 1 Nikkor CX 70-300 mm f/4.5-5.6 zoom lens. This article features a selection of Nikon 1 V3 ducks in flight images captured handheld.

For situations where I want a ‘specific moment capture’ this frame rate will come in handy. This short article shares the first 10 frames from an image run of an egret taking flight at 60 FPS. The 10 consecutive images that follow were captured in 1/6th of a second. Continue reading Egret Taking Flight at 60 FPS

I made a quick visit to the Hendrie Valley Sanctuary a couple of days ago hoping to photograph some ospreys fishing. Nature didn’t cooperate in that regard but did supply some swallows with fledglings. Continue reading Swallows with Fledglings
