The Round Pond in Kensington Gardens has a very late brood of Egyptian Geese. This pair has produced three broods this year.

I spent several hours with these herons, initially creeping in short stages through the grass until I had positioned them against dark woodland. After a while they always ignore me, settle down to sleep and often start preening. There has to be some trust before they begin preening as they often close their eyes or position their head in such a way that I remain out of their vision. Most of these shots are full frame, some with slight trimming of the black background.

I made a short visit to Richmond last weekend while the week-long 'summer' of blue skies in the south-east hit 29C. The Red Deer were taking it easy in the shade until late in the day when the territorial battles commenced. I concentrated on getting some shots of stags showing some accidental ornamentation.
