11th-18th May 2006


36 hours after getting home from California, and still suffering 8 hours of jet-lag, I flew out to the Greek island of Lesbos (a further 2 time zones east) with a couple of friends for a week of concentrated wildlife photography. Below is a small selection of photos taken on the trip. A full trip report will be posted as soon as I have time to prepare it.
