Well it is time to mark the passing of another year. 2008 has been a colourful year for photography. Spring was bright and beautiful, summer was wet and cold, the autumn was spectacular and winter is turning out to be freezing cold with some nice bright days.

My post shows a calendar of some of my photos:
January - a winter Robin
February - a red squirrel in winter finery
March - a fox in a box! nice bright sunshine had this young fox sunbathing
April - a stoat in it's new summer coat
May - fox cub
June - pheasant chick
July - Iceland Puffin
August - a raptor
September - a water vole swimming with the fallen autumn leaves
October - the red deer rut
November - a seal taken at a seal hospital
December - an ice-skating otter

I hope 2008 has been good to you and I wish you all the best for 2009.

See you next year!

Hi Karan

All the best to you, too, my friend and may 2009 be at least as good photography year as 2008 was :) I also hope that it will be a year we'll meet face to face and go shooting together (if you decide to join our big TN meeting) :)

This is a wonderful collage of what 2008 was all about...and i would say it's been quite a good year...
All of the animals shown here are lovely and some presented in very cute or original poses.
The idea with a calendar is actually not bad at all...who knows, maybe you can even get some extra cash with it :)

Cheers, TFS and Happy New Year!

Dear Karan,
Thank you for your kind wishes (and your earliesr vists and comments)...What a dazzling array of captures from 2008 you present here!!!Each one beautiful and unique in its own pose and details.I see you have a bend towards frontal PoVs and they inded make a very lasting impression. For instance, i never thought fox in a box or fox cubs looked so cute...

Keep them coming in 2009 as well..
Healthy and Peaceful 2009 to you...

Ciao Karan, fantastic collage of beautiful creatures, each one with fine details and excellent sharpness,
I like a lot

Well done and a Happy 2009, Karan
Fantastic squares in this collection and apparently xcellent wildlife photography.

Hi Karan,
This is a beautiful calendar you have there. Every picture is appropriate to the month and you chose excellent and very cute subjects. Technically there is nothing to say except: congratulations and have a wonderful New Year. TFS,
