The birds are back…………
After a month or more of pain in my neck and shoulder I finally capitulated and went to the doctor. During that time I have not carried my birding kit at all. Very frustrating. The doc waved his magic wand, recited the magic words, Izzy Wizzy, Let’s get busy and with rather more success than Sooty, the tablets did the trick. I slept without pain and I can move freely again.
As a trial I set up the bazooka this afternoon and tried a few garden shots. And here they are. Both common birds but a welcome relief from total abstinence. It is the breeding season and the birds are keeping themselves in fine fettle just in case a certain little lady goes by. Oh me, oh my!!
And a lusty rendering of The Bulbul’s Chorus is a sure-fire magnet for any passing gal. Come into the garden, Maud!And of course you will have noted that I am now using LR5.4 to render these images, after finally abandoning LR4 before Adobe removes the right to buy LR5 on a stand alone basis.
I also picked up a new lens for my X-T1 today – a nice little portrait lens. And here is a test shot. Of course she doesn’t know I’ve posted this but hey ho, you only live once.
