It was lovely to watch 3 Long tailed tits collecting feathers for their nests that they were building, 1 managed to find a small bundle of wool that was untangled from a barded wire fence.

I disabled notifications for the bird threads for a while because I was busy with POTN's Nifty but Nifty moved on to England and I'm back to birds. But wow, this thread really moves fast. I'll never catch up!

Just a shot of a little Blue Tit in a natural frame.

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

Female Cardinal. I almost prefer the females to the males.

Yes! So do I. They're just so pretty, aren't they?
