2014 has been a challenging year for me for my Wildlife Journey point of view. I decided to spend the year focusing and improving on my photography, as well as spending some of my time with a passion of mine, the Kingfishers at Rye Meads.
With the amount of time spent with these lovely little birds, I was frustrated not to be able to see the fledglings on the 3 possible occasions. However, I hope 2015 will bring better success for me.
2014 has also been the year of the Grey Squirrels for me. They are lovely furry little creatures, but also lethal to my other favourite furry friends, the Red Squirrels.
2014 has also been an eye opener for my macro photograph, with Butterflies being the main focus.
I still have some way to go with the Butterflies and macro photography, but it will be my personal challenge in 2015.
2014 has also been a great year for me with Deer Photography. I’ve learnt a fair bit when it comes to composition and what works. But it will continue to be a learning curve.
My Deer photography has also taken a boost with the shortlist in the 2014 National Geographic Competition with the following image being given a Honourable Mention.
The above image was taken in 2013, but as the contest was in 2014, it is still one of my proudest moments.
Other images of my 2014 journey can be found below.

I’m hoping that 2015 will allow me to improve my photography further.
