Haven't been in the field for a while as my eyes have really deteriorated since they measured me up for a cataract op which I'm having on Monday and I'm not allowed to drive. A$2.5K for each eye but I can't get the 2nd eye done till after the new year so I don't know if I'll be posting much as I'm even having difficulty reading text. Someone said to me that it'll be the best lens I ever bought so I hope so at those prices :-)

I got these in the garden this morning and I'm thinking that perhaps I should have shot jpg as I can't trust my PP at the moment but anyways, they tell a story. The birds are loving my new bird bath :-)

What a sight! They are awesome, not the most handsome bird out there but you've done that very well.
Really nice.

Trust all goes well.
I know full well just how clever those eye surgeons are and how they can transform your sight in what to them is a quite simple procedure.
You've got something to look forward to.
Heed their after care advice is all I can offer.

Thanks Richard but I didn't even know what they were until I got them on the computer :-)

Wonderful shot Paul. I can't say that I've ever seen young birds in the nest look cute, cuddly, and affectionate towards their mom, but these two do
