All images today are courtesy of the 135mm lens. Since switching to Canon I’ve been through a few lenses. Some are crap like the 17mm-40mm. Some like this one I like. Next week the 17mm-40mm is going and this was going to join it but not now. It gets recognisable pictures of birds, is light and can also get reasonably close. It stays. I really want the new 17mm tilt shift Canon lens but I’d have to sell Bertha. I’ve become attached to Bertha. Far too heavy to drag around but it does shut birders up and gathers light like there’s no tomorrow.
We have moved one valley north and are in Glen Nevis. I stopped at Morrison's in Fort William and got food. This time I remembered the Bells. Twelve days without a drink…..my head thought I’d turned into a Mormon or Methodist…. No wonder there have been some grumpy posts.
The feeders here are doing well. Siskin, House Sparrow and Chaffinch. I’m amazed at how many Siskin there are in this part of Scotland. Cuckoos too. Not seen one but wherever I go they are cuckooing away.
Twenty three degrees here. I took the dogs to the bar next door for a pint. The bar next door is not worthy of a post. It has carpets not flag stones and mountaineers are expected to remove their boots. There had to be one cloud on the horizon.
I’ll pop by again tomorrow. Have fun.
