    1. I’ve enjoyed a bit of ornithology since I was a kid. My photographic interest, however, was really sparked once I got my hands on a digital camera and a telephoto lens.
      All the very best for ’21,to you Brian. Let’s hope it turns out to be a little less ”interesting” , for all of us, yes?.

      1. I was thinking of other kinds of “bird” watching, but you are right. Now the right equipment is not enough. You have the eye. And the hand (key with a zoom)
        Likewise. We could use a little boredom. 😉

    1. Well, I sometimes feel a bit prehistoric myself these days so perhaps it is apt that the birds and I share some sort of kinship?

      All the very best to you , Lisa.

      1. hehehe! I’m a 55 year old graphic designer so when I still had my job before covid, “the guys” would make old jokes. Like…”you remember back when you wrote graphics on the cave walls with a rock”. I’m okay with that. Means I may know more than the younguns. 🙂

        1. I have always believed it is important to be ”in” something.
          In the garden, In the moment, In touch, In love.
          So In corrigible sounds good to moi.
          🙂

    1. He’s a treat, isn’t he? These were taken a while back, and we haven’t seen the owls on such a regular basis, although they are heard from time to time.
