About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for all sorts of images, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous in my photography, trying new ideas and working in many genres. And I'm fond of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

    It is rare to catch a birb that is gliding and forms a straight line like that …. very nice

      Its not gliding, Nelson >>> I’ve just been fortunate in catching the wings in the same plane as the body, and 1/400th second has frozen it. I never use motor drive because it gives the camera less time to achieve focus between shots – instead I keep focus on the subject and pump away on the shutter button, which achieves more in focus results. The shot after this shows the wings down below the body, ie near the bottom of the downstroke. Thanks, Adrian.

    A gorgeous image, my friend! Makes me think of “The Wonderful Adventures of Nils” (Dover Children’s Classics) by Selma Lagerlof.
