As a child my plane crashed in the Himalayas & I was raised by an advanced civilisation that taught me photography, ESP & precognition, no, wait that was the Champions wasn’t it?

Ah well, 50+ & getting more muddled by the day.

Hope you enjoy my work, and feel free to buy anything you like enough. :-)

    So amazing a capture with such perfect composition!

  • Thank you Marilyn. Actually the composition was enhanced by cropping afterwards. You don’t have much time when these beauties fly toward you other than to react.

    Many thanks for your comment
