I’m starting this week with a very simple photo, from an outing a few weeks ago to photograph the full moon rising from Tigné point, Sliema. Just before packing up, with the 1.4x teleconverter still fitted on the 150-600mm lens, I pointed the camera in the direction of the moon itself.

I’m slowly getting used to the different birds, butterflies, and bats that I cross paths with, and for the first time I’m … Continue reading Male Sardinian Warbler
