  • Friday 13th šŸ¦šŸŒæLucky for some!
Spotted Flycatcher (Muscicapa striata) scroll to see more āž”ļøāž”ļøāž”ļø
UK conservation status: šŸ›‘ Red
I missed photographing this pretty little migratory species a few times for one reason or another - one time I had great views but my battery died, another time I was too far away, the next time was at Portland Bird Observatory one turned up outside the conservatory but the house cat had got comfy on my lap and dug her claws in when I tried to move! šŸ˜ I had started to call Spotted Flycatcher my ā€˜Nemesisā€™. Then on Friday 13th a chap called Patrick had just found one in Richmond Park as I arrived. I got a couple of record shots before it flitted away but I was happy just to see it. A few hours later after everyone from our group walk had gone home I decided to see if it was still around. I was thrilled to relocate it by myself, around 100yds from where it was before. I got a sore neck from watching it catching flies in the sunny treetops but it was lovely to see this now rare sight. Spotted Flycatchers were once a common garden nesting species, but have suffered 87% decline since 1970. Hope it has a safe migration to Africa and will come back next summer.

  • Perfect Cheetah cover shot with room for the masthead. Photo Editors? Art directors. Anybody? šŸ™‚ 
Shot this as part of a lens test last year at a local zoo while prepping for a safari.  While looking through some images this weekend I found this one and decided to play with it a bit in post.  I really like the deep green background contrasting with the cheetahā€™s yellow orange coloring. .
Cheetah factoid:  One way to always recognize a cheetah is by the long, black lines which run from the inside of each eye to the mouth. These are usually called ā€œtear linesā€ and scientists believe they help protect the cheetahā€™s eyes from the harsh sun and help them to see long distances.
.
šŸ“øPhoto Tip:  Composition.  I like to ā€œplayā€ with my compositions as to give them variety when Iā€™m shooting if the subject matter allows.  I start off using ā€œrule of thirdsā€ for a pleasing framing and then I start moving my subject around in the frame.  Shoot horizontals with subject left side, right side and then verticals with top and bottom placement.  Fill the frame to eliminate the background, then pull back with lots of space to include the background.  Give yourself just a little more room around your subjects as well because you can always crop inwards, you canā€™t crop outwards!  This will give you lots of options later for use of your images, especially for any anticipated commercial use of your images.  This will give art directors space for using type along with your images for placement in magazines, brochures, and advertisements.  Always give yourself some options, you wonā€™t regret it later!
.
šŸ¤“Techie Stuff:  ISO 400 f/2.8 @ 1/250th sec.  Nikon D810 with a AF Nikkor 400mm, f/2.8.
