Thanks, 3 months to build the pond but the birds love it. Cannot wait to get a good capture of the finches who now bathe in it every day.:D

Ah, it's your pond. Got a big picture of the whole thing? I'd love to have one here. :)

Sure, not quite finished yet and needs to grow in a bit but ...

and then the view from the sofa. This is what I see every morning, it's hard to leave for work some days :)

Wow, that looks great. It needs a deep end though, so you can get in there with the birdies. Maybe get you a couple ducks. :)

Nice setup and capture. It isn't all the time that you see the bigger birds taking a dip :)

NOOOOOO it nearly killed me digging that size out.:D

Funny but over the back fence they have ducks there so you never know, I have had pheasant and even a goose once but I am right next to a lake and the woods.;)

So where were you when you shot the pigeon? Is your lens long enough to shoot from the sofa? It's hard to tell perspective with a wide angle shot. Looks like a great place though. The birds are going to love it. :)

Lovely yard, LordBrian. Great shot of the Pigeon, it's so seldom you'll see them in the pond.

Not quite on the sofa, I have a tripod and the 7d with a 100-400 about 4ft from the patio window. It's 5:30am and there is a Chaffinch taking a drink...:D
