Hi, safari photographer learning about birds!

hi all, I'm new to all this.. had a few safaris and started off with the big mammals but on the last few trips I've found myself spending most of my time trying to get pics of the birds out there. I want to get better at taking pics, so hopefully will get some inspiration from the rest of you here!

(I'll figure out how to do signatures soon, but for now my pics are at https://www.instagram.com/mike.cambridge/?hl=en )

Hi Mikey and a warm welcome to you from all the Staff and Moderators.

I'm sure you will enjoy it here. I look forward to hearing your news and will hope fully see some of your pictures in the Gallery too.

Regarding your signature there are a few restrictions placed on new members, which you can read more about here.

The time will soon pass, I'm sure.
