LOVE the first one. And the otter, of COURSE. And, well, the second fox shot too. (*Sigh* Do you ever take a bad pic?)
Nice to see you had some good weather! And had a meeting of the 'white lenses' club
well since its the meeting of us two I suppose I should show some of what I got!

that Water Vole is a cute little bugger
Whoa, nice ones, Overread! I especially like the first fox shot (the way it's peaking out of the grasses), and whatever that last one is. (I think I know what it is, but in case I'm wrong I'm not going to try to name it)
And a couple more

I like the fox ones the best, and the water vole is gorgeous!
Do you guys have any tips for the aspiring wildlife photographer, such as, for example, where to find such creatures and how the hell to get that close?
if im correct these were taken at a wildlife center.
one tip from me ( also wildlife photographer) if you want to find them in the wild, look for the tell tail signs like waste from them etc and even dens. also a blind helps out alot.
onto the mini meetup!
1. overread-not at all like i pictured you:lmao:
love all the shots great work, looks like it was fun!
I always thought he was a husky ...
Yep these shots were taken at a wildlife centre (British Wildlife Centre so not too far from you pm63!). As for getting close I have (sadly) little to know idea - mostly I just try to get close to bugs and that is hard enough. All I can say is practice, patience and a good long lens help a lot!
Matt - what did you think I looked like?
