Of course I do love photos, so someone's got to take them
This is where the lines blur and at some point you have to decide if your'e a birder with a camera or a photographer who likes birds and a compromise on whater you conclude will have to be made?

Luckily for me, my wife is a photographer who carries all her kit on all our walks.
