Hard bird to pronounce, even harder to photograph. They move so very fast and are so very very small. This feature introduces you to the life of this very little bird and my pursuit of capturing one in flight.
Meet the Mistletoebird, a very small but quite amazing little song bird.

Some of the best game drives in Kenya are not actually about Lions and Leopards, but the very small creatures that bounce about between trees and shrubs. It was the bird life in Kenya that really took my breath away on my two week safari in Kenya.
Shooting Sunrise at Meili Xue Shan
Iconic mountains capped with snow and untamed by man. Of all the legends that circulate around the newly named Shangri-La county, the "Snow Mountains" known simply as Mei Li are easily the most convincing. Majestic peaks alter the weather and thrill the crowds. There are no certainties about getting clear skies for sunrise, but true landscape photographers are a patient lot anyway.
My Other Birding Lens
Panasonic Leica DG Elmarit 200mm f/2.8 – Long term review of this superb telephoto prime. How does it stand up to the 100-400mm options and how much better is the image quality?
Custom Settings for Lumix G9
One of my favourite features on modern cameras is the custom settings dial. C1. C2. C3. I use these all the time. They allow you to respond to different shooting situations very quickly, and yet adhere to a baseline that makes it easier to learn your camera better.
Angkor Wat and Siem Reap
Angkor is special. Crowded, popular, humid, hot and special. There are a lot of people who visit this place, but because it's special. It's one of those places that lives up to the hype. Hordes of tourists and scores of relentless souvenir sellers are the serious downside, have no doubt. But despite these impedances you can get great shots of the ancient ruins and contemporary culture.
Lumix G9 in Kenya
Review of the new Lumix after field testing for two weeks on safari, chasing big game and small.
Nepal Photography Tour
One of the most diverse and challenging tours I have ever organised, this non-trekking adventure gets up close and personal with holy men of Kathmandu, takes travellers into the pure air of the Annapurnas and rolls through the dusty streets of Newari villages in Kathmandu Valley. Sultry sadus, scenic mountains and the noble Newari.
