I love nature, and take inspiration from its infinite variety and colour when ever I can.

I was out walking in the countryside recently, when my eye was caught by a sudden flash of orange. I waited patiently, and was rewarded when a kingfisher alighted on a branch overhanging a canal.

I did not have my camera with me, but luckily a friend who is a keen photographer had a photograph of a kingfisher which I used as my subject.
