This image was taken in the car park of the M40 motorway services at Oxford in August 2013. I was actually trying to capture one of the birds of prey that could be seen circling above, but they didn't come close enough. I was just about to put my camera away when I spotted this bee on a plant next to the car.

Bol Harbour, Croatia

In August 2013, my girlfriend and I went on holiday to Croatia. We stayed in the town of Bol on the island of Bra─Ź, off the mainland near Split. This is a view of the town's harbour. I can recommend the restaurant "Pumparela" to the left of frame where they do an excellent steak, which is brought out to you on a hot stone still cooking so that you can choose how rare you want it for yourself.

Barn Swallow

A family of Barn Swallows was nesting near to a holiday cottage in Mavis Enderby, near Spilsby in Lincolnshire, where I was staying in July 2012. This juvenile, lacking the long tail streamers of the adults, landed on a roof just outside one of the windows, allowing me to get this shot.

Night Journey

This photo was taken in January 2012 from the back seat of my parents' car on a trip to Sainsbury's.
