Red Deer: This image was shot against a dark background, so I could capture the effect of the water as the Red Deer shook his drenched fur. A slow shutter speed and beanbag were required. I also had to wait 30 minutes for the Red Deer to decide he was to wet and needed a drying out, so a bit of patience required.
Red Sqiurrel: A feeding station was set up by Niall to attract the squirrels in, but it is still not easy they run in get some food and run off. 600mm lens and tripod required here.
Crested Tit: Again a feeding station is set up. We both walk in but Niall leaves me on my own for 1 1/2 hours as he says there is a better chance of getting an image with one of us there. I caught this one on an old Scottish Pine and I am really pleased with it.
Greater Spotted Woodpecker: Niall knew of a pair of these that used a feeding station but he was sure one had been taken by a raptor of some sort. So the chances of me getting a shot were slim, however after 90 minutes this one duly turned up. So I had a "full house" as I bagged everything I went to photograph. (Like an idiot I didn't know at the time the GS Woodpeckers are only 8 miles from me at Stithians!!)
