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 :-)

All the people I know that have had ops to remove cataracts have said what a huge improvement it is. Even after one eye, you should notice an improvement after the eye has settled down. So, it should be money well-spent. Here in the UK such ops are free, but you have to wait until the cataracts are very bad before you can go on the waiting list, although you could opt to go private to reduce waiting time - if you can afford it. Good luck to you, Kev.

I don't know where you are in the world, but that's not a raven - the beak is far too slender! Nice, though.

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 :-)

Um... I don't think there's any US crow with a pale eye. This is a grackle of some kind - Boat-tailed, I think.

Nice Justin. I like all the color, and sharpness of the chickadee.
