Love Birds

These two ring-collared doves have been canoodling in our garden for days now and just the other day as we returned home from a walk we spotted them in one of our trees, sitting out the rain.
 I just managed to get this shot before my camera batteries ran out. I am amazed how well this came out since it was hand-held at full zoom - my little camera never ceases to amaze me!

Early evening sunshine

I took this photo yesterday on a quick walk around our village to get some fresh air. It was about 5.45pm so a lovely evening light....

Bentley Wildfowl

Okay, let's kick-off with our recent visit to Bentley Wildfowl and Motor Museum, near East Grinstead, East Sussex.
I've been meaning to visit this place for so long and last week we finally got there. Boy, was it worth a visit.
Birds are my absolute favourite creatures so I was in my element and, of course, I had my trusty camera with me.
My camera, by the way, is a 'bridge' camera. Only a little thing but, to my mind, packed with good stuff.
It's a Fuji Finepix S1600 and I LOVE it!
So here are a few of the photos I took with it, using quite a lot of zoom in many of these shots. Hope you enjoy them.............

You can click on each photo to get the best quality viewing of it.

The house at Bentley is also rather lovely as is the collection of vintage cars.......
