Everything is Permuted

Pulborough Brooks

This set is a small sample of a vast number of shots taken at Pulborough Brooks (an RSPB reserve in Sussex) on 30 August 2008 one of the rare sunny days of this summer. The Spitfire was the biggest surprise. Presumably it was on its way to the Shoreham Air Show, which is held over this weekend.

A second sequence of shots was taken on 21 March 2009 and contains several personal first, beginning with the wigeons, the teal but most notable was the adder. These were basking along one of the paths and attracting a fine range of camera equipment!

All the shots were taken with the EOS 40D and EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L USM IS lens (apart from the first shot which was taken with the Sigma 105mm macro on a 400D body). For some shots I added the Kenko 1.4x teleconverter. All shots were taken from hides or lookout points. I was just lucky that the cormorant came in close while I was photographing a darter on the end of branch! A number of the adder shots were taken with the Sigma macro.
