SOME NATURE FAVOURITES...

Nature and wildlife shots are one of my favourite themes. In the photographic world, the Nature category requires images to show no sign of the "hand of man"

. These pictures fill that requirement (one tiny exception). Birds in flight represent the most difficult photographic assignment, and I'm pleased with the ones here although they are far from technically perfect.
