Not actually a magazine cover, but for once I did shoot something in a style where it could be, now where's the number of BBC Wildlife Magazine Grin

Sorry but you can never have too many reds in your portfolio.

Will be doing some more water drop shots this weekend. I had been hoping to get over to the nature reserve, but it's not looking hopeful on that one.

Cheryl, have you heard of 'Countryfile?', I think they might like this one Smile BBC Wildlife Magazine? Hmm...... let me just look on my phone..... Tongue 0117 927 9009, I think that's the same one Richard gave.
They'd definitely take it for the wonderful perch, the great detail and lovely pose. If you're lucky, they might even put it on the front cover! Tongue

The framing certainly has left header space at the top of the image with Tufty clean and clear at the bottom of the frame.
Feb 2010 had Tufty on the front cover so I reckon its one to sit on for a few months and then have a go for the front cover!
All the best

One of the best red squirrel shots I've seen recently, and there have been some great ones. Really lovely work - you are to be complimented!

I think Jonah that Csurry is being a bit sarcastic here, and probably a bit rude as well.
We dont all follow her work with a passion but if you had been tracking her semi prolific photographic career beyond epz then Country File picked one of her Tuftys for thier Calendar this year.
Well done Cheryl on encouraging the youngsters.

I think you will find that I have more than encouraged the youngsters on this site, and probably Jonah in particular. In fact I am off to Scotland in just over a month to photograph the osprey with him, and to loan him a lens for the session. I think he is mature enough to know a sarcastic joke when he reads it even if there wasn't a smiley. Grin

Thanks all.

Nice try Brian Grin

But actually it was Jonah that arranged the trip, I know he's only invited me so his dad doesn't have to get up at 4am and so he can borrow an f/2.8 lens. I have no pretence otherwise Wink
