So here it is...Chris, Kate, Simon and Martin talking about some of the stunning pictures from the Springwatch photo group. (You can also watch the inaugural Springwatch Pub Quiz too.)

    Like Chris, I too imagine a photograph and then spend countless hours trying to create it.
    I sometimes find a spot in the forest and then imagine a deer standing in a particular place within the frame.
    I have been lucky in the past and this has worked. But there are countless other times where I am still waiting for the magic shot and probably will be for the rest of my life!

    Very good. Although I can see that a lot of people have misunderstand how a photo critique works and what the purpose of it is, with all the comments about Chris on the forums. I don't think he was being mean at all. He was just explaining how to get better photographs. The route to improving your images is honest evaluation.

    Can someone please tell Simon in no uncertain terms to refrain from americanising his dialogue. They have critters, we have animals. They have bugs and we have insects. Why on earth is he doing this? It takes away greatly from his admirable skills.

    nice bit about the difference between eagles and buzzrds - BUT we have had a white-tailed sea eagle in Yorkshire so don't discount everyones sightings!!

    I was recently playing golf at Luffness in Scotland when we heard a great commotion by Magpies and saw two crows killing a fledgling magpie. When that one was dead they pulled another one from the nest and killed that as well. We were all amazed. Is this common?

    @jpcridlan that would be a good question for the messageboard.

    I totally agree with Chris Packham as to what is wrong with my picture of leaping hares. The fence line in the background is a disaster, they are too central in the shot, the shadow in the foreground is distracting, the ISO was 800 I would have preferred 100, I could go on, but for me the moment that was captured will live with me forever. I was out with a photographer friend and he had obtained some great shots of boxing hares the day before. To say there is a friendly rivalry between us is slightly understating the case. He was crowing about his shots and I was determined to get some at least as good. We had spent a total of around six hours with these hares, over two days, when I saw the hare start its run towards the other hare. I got three shots off as it jumped over and as soon as I saw it on the camera playback I knew I'd be going home happy. I may play with it in Photoshop now just for Chris :-) More hare shots from that session at www.flickr.com/photos/oldbilluk
