May is usually a busy time for wildlife in the Northern hemisphere as we get into the f'ull-on' part of the breeding season.
I took my usual trip to Mull and set out a number of reports from Day 1 here to Day 6 here. The in between days are all posted in the Archives if you want to see more from that trip. I covered off trip preparation here.
On the way back south, I came via the north east of England and found a great site for Early Purple Orchids.
Sadly, Dave's mum passed away which necessitated a return to England and the need to attend to more important matters there.
Once back in the USA, Dave showed us what was happening on his local patch here, and showed us a couple of blogs on long lens techniques here and here. We did quite a few posts throughout the year on Long lens work, so if you open one of these links and click on the long lens techniques tag, you should find all of those from the series if you are interested.
On the gear front Dave reviewed the Nikon sb900 flash head here.
