I took up photography when I retired. I photograph a wide variety of things with nature and macro being at the forefront. I am fascinated by the intricate detail in tiny insects and bugs. I wanted to write a blog to share some of the beautiful places I have visited and the wildlife (mostly miniature) I have photographed.
Over the weekend I have thought about todays challenge and knowing I wasn't going far from home I decided to see if I could take images of 22 different birds. Living near the river is an advantage as I was able to get some water bird shots, and I also filled up all the feeders over the weekend which encouraged other birds to the area.
I started with the birds close to home and then I went on a two mile circular walk to find more. The bird song was beautiful this morning. I think they were as happy to have a bright, sunny morning as I was.
