I make no claims to be a photographer - I generally just set the camera in 'auto' mode, then point and shoot. Having started to take photos of birds, however, I am beginning to experiment with some of the camera settings, and now hope to learn a bit more about photography.
Many of the Butterfly and Wildflower photos were taken while I was out walking. The Bird photos have generally been taken when I've been somewhere bird watching, or else in my parent's garden.
In December 2007 I purchased a Panasonic FZ18 camera - a 'bridge' camera with an 18x zoom lens with image stabilisation. Prior to that date, the photos were taken with an Olympus Mju compact camera. I still use this camera occasionally, as it is more compact than the Panasonic and is weather-proof.
