Pictures on a cold morning.










I'm beginning to think that I am going quite mad! Is this what happens when you get a camera and there are birds about. It's a lovely sunny day but very windy and to use a Newfie expression, "The wind is cold enough to take the skin off ya." I've been looking outside when I go past a window and if I see birds in the garden I throw on my heavy clothes, grab the camera and stand in the freezing cold to get a picture. At one point my hands got so cold I could hardly move my fingers. I've been outside so many times now, I'm getting exhausted, lol. Didn't end up with many pictures, I think it's even too cold for the birds.

If you don't send me that squirrel right now, I am coming over to get him! My birds all do a disappearing act the second I turn the camera on. I've been trying to get one of my tame robin for days now, he sees me in the kitchen window, and flies over and parks himself in the bush until I open the window and put suet pellets in the dish. Did this today with the camera on, ready poised, and would he come over, would he hell!

Yes, loved the pic of the squig! Excellent shots of the birds too. It is an addiction, so far I have not become too addicted, but give me time!
