The World of Birds by Jonathan Elphick is published this week featuring around 800 of my images. It is the most up to date and complete treatise on the worlds birds and their biology available in a single volume. My image of a Rhinoceros Hornbill has been reproduced on the cover. This picture was taken on a £200 Nikon coolpix compact camera some years ago which goes to show you do not always need an expensive camera to the job!
If you have ever attempted to film or photograph hawking dragonflies, you will know it is a tricky business! This Southern Hawker however was hunting a dyke at Cley and in the wind tended to keep low and straight.
