Your beautiful bird photographs make me almost want to become a bird watcher at the Botanic Gardens. Perhaps....nah, not now. Maybe later. Love those finches!

The differences between male and female in some species is remarkable really.

I may have a "photographers eye", but H really does have a comedians turn of phrase! I think I could be in for real trouble when he is a teenager!

Cheers and thanks for linking to WBW.
