11.07.08 | Anglesey

Spent a week on Anglesey, mainly for a holiday for Michaela and I, but there were some good opportunities for some wildlife photography. The weather was mixed but we diid se some good sun. I spent a few early mornings at RSPB Stack - the cliffs are a great place to see a variety of seabirds. We found a Puffin burrow, and I got a few long range digiscope shots of a pair. I was also able to photograph using the DSLR set-up - some inquisative young Stonechat on the cliff tops as well as some newly flegged Chough. I also spent some time during the week using my new Canon 100mm f2.8 Macro lens, the very narrow depth of field is taking a bit of getting used to and a tripod is essential, but I was pleased with some of the results I got. Whilst on Anglesey I aloso spent some time with my Dad photographing various species of Orchids on the island so the macro lens was a great tool for the job.
