Hello to friends old and new

Hello everyone.
First of all thanks to Graeme (have I spelt it right;)) for pointing me in this direction.

I'm Glen, but a couple of you may remember me from an old forum by the name of Shaggy. Feel free to call me what you will (I'm used to it;)).

My main hobby was Birdwatching then I met a Wildlife photographer and got the idea to "Shoot" the birds I see as a permanent reminder rather than just ticking a list in a book.
I got my first camera in 2006, a Fuji Finepix s5600 Zoom, which give me lots of practice and a few good pic's too.
In 2009 I upgraded to my first DSLR, a Canon 450D with the basic 18-55mm kit lens and a member of another forum gave me a Tamron 80-210mm lens to be going on with until I could scrape the money together for a big lens.
When I first got my DSLR I said only wanted two lenses for the sort of Photography that I do (wildlife mainly) and they were a telephoto lens and a dedicated Macro lens.
This year I have finally got them. In March I got a Canon 400mm f5.6 L and two weeks ago I got a Tamron 90mm f2.8 Macro lens.

As I said, most of my Photography is Wildlife but I occasionally try something a little different when some one gives me a bit of inspiration, as some of the members on here have done in the past.

I look forward to posting some of my shots (feel free to comment on ways to improve them, it all helps in the learning) and I look forward to seeing more great shots from all of you.
