  • Not my falconry pictures!

    We were at the East Anglian Game and Country Fair with Fens Falconry and my newly launched outfit to do wildlife photography and tuition, . Just to show you that you don't need years of experience or the best kit - here's a few from my daughter, Charlotte (Aged 11).

    Also bear in mind she is using a lowly and unsophisticated Olympus E-420 with 40-150 f3.5-4.5 mk I lens. Looks pretty good to me!

    Full gallery here.

    Super, I think you should lock your own camera somewhere safe!

    What if the Hokey Cokey is what its all about?

      It must be in the genes they're great.

        Must run in the family, those are very good indeed.
        The picture tells the story, great when you have a bad memory.DW.

              Brilliant. A very talented young lady.

              Really proves there's a lot more to photography than just cameras.

              Thanks for sharing.

                Two good shots. The bird is well isolated against the background in #1, a second later and it would have been in front on the handler. #2 is stunning.

                  Could do with some lessons from your 11, year old daughter! She took some really nice photos.
