Shag Study

Firstly apologies for the long delay since the last post. June has been an incredibly busy month with workshops nearly every day and night. I managed to squeeze in a trip to the Farnes with excellent company, and managed to get some shots I had been thinking of for a while of the Shags that breed close to the path. With some Puffin shots in the bag form previous visits I dedicated most of my time to trying out the Macro on birds – not something I often get the chance to do.
 
So lets start with the full Shag and move in!
