Finn’s view


Two days ago, I noted that during a walk in the woods, my daughter, Cynthia, managed nicer images than I did.

Recently, my grandson, Finn, also spent a week with me. During our walks, he did likewise. He is faster on the draw, and more patient in observing than I am. Here are four of Finn’s shots.

A European Skipper sits in a world awash with ocher.

A white-tailed buck in velvet peeks out from the security of tall grass.

An Eastern Kingbird goes after a bug in the grass.

His most dramatic shot is of squabbling Tree Swallows.

    Cynthia and Finn have a the best model and teacher imaginable. How lucky they are to learn from you, and how wonderful of you to pass your talents and skills on to the next generations. Love to all of you-Ulrike

    I agree. Bravo to these gifted young people.
    I also love how the camera and the photographer are able to stop the wonderful and
    dramatic action of wings and beaks which I, for one, would never be able to discern
    without this technology.

    Hello Alistair,

    It is fantastic to see your grandson Finn’s photographs, they are splendid! It is heartening to know there are younger folks who are keen observers of nature – this has made my day. Thank you.
