Mainly interested in nature. I was a keen birder for 20 years, and now settled to a quieter existence. I still travel to see extremely rare birds, first for Britain etc.
Increasingly, I am interested in dragonflies and butterflies,
which gets me out on the nicer days.
Born long ago, in Mansfield, England and still live there. Have one son, himself a regular on this site. His Flickr ID is jonbradbury.
Current cameras include
Canon EOS 40D and BG-E2N battery grip
Sigma 180mm f/3.5 EX DG APO Macro, reviewed here
Tokina AT-X 287 PRO SV 28-70 zoom f2.8 through,
Tokina AT-X 124 PRO DX 12-24 zoom f4.0 through,
Vivitar 19-35 zoom f3.5/4.5.
Sigma 1.4x EX DG teleconverter for the 180 macro
I also have a set of Jessops extension tubes for closer macro work.
I use a Manfrotto 679B monopod or Slik D2 tripod for image stabilising
For macro work, I use a Canon Speedlight 550EX flash
A flash sync cord, and some cheap wireless triggers, allows off-camera 'strobist' flash
A Canon EOS 5 film camera is now sitting by my desk and willing to work.
Total spent (including trading losses) on SLR kit £2500, mostly on e-bay.
Also, I have a Nikon Coolpix 995 for digi-scoping and macro and walkabout.
I have also used phone-scoping to reasonable effect when faced with rare birds and no other camera to hand
Your Personality is Somewhat Rare (ISFP)
Your personality type is caring, peaceful, artistic, and calm.
Only about 7% of all people have your personality, including 8% of all women and 6% of all men
You are Introverted, Sensing, Feeling, and Perceiving.
You are The Hierophant
Divine Wisdom. Manifestation. Explanation. Teaching.
All things relating to education, patience, help from superiors.The Hierophant is often considered to be a Guardian Angel.
The Hierophant's purpose is to bring the spiritual down to Earth. Where the High Priestess between her two pillars deals with realms beyond this Earth, the Hierophant (or High Priest) deals with worldly problems. He is well suited to do this because he strives to create harmony and peace in the midst of a crisis. The Hierophant's only problem is that he can be stubborn and hidebound. At his best, he is wise and soothing, at his worst, he is an unbending traditionalist.

I live in England and I don't travel far
Apr 20 - May 20
You are practical and persistent. You have dogged determination and work like hell. Most people think you are stubborn and bull-headed, which is a nice what of saying that everyone hates you and talks about you behind your back.
