    It’s time to grab those seasonal photo opportunities while you can. Instead of shooting frame-filling shots of daffodils and young animals, why not go one step further and try to capture a more arresting image?

    “I was cycling near a meadow, when I saw some strange white movements from the corner of my eye,” says nature pro Roeselien Raimond.

    “Some lambs were jumping around like crazy and for a moment I wondered if they might be suffering Mad Sheep Disease, but apparently that’s just what lambs do from time to time.

    “I went back there several times to try to capture this moment, but it wasn’t easy – fences and a lack of light often were killjoys.

    “Leaping lambs are so fast and unpredictable, so prefocusing on a spot and hoping they’ll pass through it isn’t an option. I set my camera to AI Servo (continuous focus) and tried to follow them through the viewfinder instead.”

    Get started today…
    * Search for a suitable location not too far from your home, so that you can visit as soon as the light’s good.
    * Make friends with the farmer to see if you can enter the field and choose an unobscured point of view.
