This chap is one of several who have discovered the feeders outside my conservatory window. Located only about five feet from where I am sitting, the feeders give me a front-row seat of the activity and a great opportunity for capturing the antics of the birds.

Spent a great morning at the wonderful RHS Harlow Carr gardens, Harrogate, on 2 October. This little fellow popped up for a photo shoot, giving me about ten seconds of his valuable time. There will be more shots from the gardens of the course of the next couple of weeks.

A Western (or Common or Blue) Crowned Pigeon feeding its chick in the pouring rain in the aviary in Hong Kong Park. This shot was taken many years ago in pre-digital days with a Canon EOS3 and Canon EF 300mm f/2.8 IS L lens with negative film stock. The streaks are rain!
A golden palm weaver building his amazing nest from carefully woven palm leaves. It takes a bout two days to build and if the female doesn’t like it, she’ll boot it to the ground!
