When the birds don’t cooperate it’s nice to have the macro lens in the camera bag, so you don’t have to come home empty handed πŸ˜‰

Five pictures taken yesterday in Amstelveen:

mistake

Why oh why did I only bring a macro lens with me on holiday! Big mistake! I saw so many pretty little birds and really missed a zoom lens. Well here are some pictures anyway; one of a Blue Tit (Parus caeruleus) and a couple of red dots which are Eurasian Bullfinches (Pyrrhula pyrrhula)..
