Hi folks. I haven't been out with the camera for a while as my wife had a stroke on the 3rd. of the month and it's a full time job looking after her. BUT I keep the camera handy for the wild life in the garden. This little fellow keeps popping in to say hello and his favorite perch is on the top of the chiminea. I'm just sat in a nice comfy chair in the conservatory with the camera by my side. You can't get any more lazy and comfortable than that.
CHEERS Vic.

Born again biker with lots of Pentax bits. Every day I wake up is a good day. I'm so old I don't even buy green bananas.

Nice shot Vic. That's the beauty of photography, we can put in as much effort or as little effort as we want but still get lots of pleasure from it! Hope your wife is back to 100% very soon!

My best wishes for your wife's full recovery. My own wife had a mild stroke a little over a year ago, and was soon well again.

Nice photo of your little companion. I hope that you feed it regularly.

Thanks Stan. We get squirrels? "Spelling"? and all sorts of birds. The one I've heard from time to time is the Woodpecker but have only seen it once. That's why I keep the camera handy.

Wildlife in the garden. We just had a neighbour's black cat. (Nasty things that s**t all over the garden) chasing 2 yes 2 squirrels up the Yew tree in the garden. Then around comes the Red Kite and a Buzzard. How about that for the wildlife coming to me.
