Smile! The world is a beautiful place (^_^)


Oh, what to do when housebound, feeling blue, not able to go outside? Why, use the super zoom in one’s new PowerShot of course! Here’s a cute little Blue Tit seen in my backyard today.

    • Thanks so much, Ed! Still trial-and-error, but I enjoy learning! πŸ™‚

      November 8, 2012 at 4:34 PM

  17. Nice picture, what is your secret for capturing birds? Every time I try by the time I am all set up they have flown off, or moved out of focus.

    November 8, 2012 at 5:47 PM

    • Thanks Bren! I have no other secret than Patience.. Especially these small ones, they’re so quick and doing that “now you see me, now you don’t” thing all the time! Try and try again… πŸ™‚

      November 8, 2012 at 5:49 PM

      • My other half, can capture them in flight, but me no way are they going to stay still.. Think I will stick to the flowers and leave him to the birds..:D

        November 8, 2012 at 5:54 PM

        • Me too, I haven’t tried to photograph one in flight, I struggle enough with the ones sitting still. πŸ™‚

          November 8, 2012 at 5:55 PM

  18. Great and hope you feel better soon.

    November 9, 2012 at 2:17 PM

    November 14, 2012 at 11:02 AM

    • Thanks so much! Indeed, the zoom is amazing. πŸ™‚ Thanks, I feel much better now!

  20. Such brilliant plumage!

    December 1, 2012 at 5:00 AM

    • Yes it’s a beautiful little one! πŸ™‚ Thanks for teaching me a new word, I didn’t know what “plumage” meant!

      December 1, 2012 at 2:28 PM

      • It’s a favorite word of bird identification books.
