My day started a bit slow - I had things I wanted to do, still some cards to make despite thinking I was near to finishing. I just couldn't come up with an idea that would set me off. I didn't actually start until about 2pm - but then everything went well & the mojo flowed.
It was when I was later in the kitchen making a very much needed cup of tea that I spotted ....................
Mr Blackbird stopping off at the "Ty Gwyn Arms"
He had already been having a good peck at that apple before I decided I just had to go & get my camera & see what I might be able to capture.
just taking a rest before starting again
nearly, nearly got a shot of him pecking at the apple - but not quite
I think he has suddenly realised it is time to go home - perhaps he heard Mrs Blackbird calling - managed to get this shot just before he took off
We always leave apples on the tree at this time of year for the birds & I love watching them. Shortly after the blackbird we had a blue-tit after the same apple - but to have got pictures of him I would have needed a good telephoto lens & a tripod. I have a little tripod for my camera - but it was upstairs in its bag & by the time I'd have run upstairs & down & fixed it to the camera he would have been gone. But it is very useful for shots I know I am going to be taking.
That's my day - hope you had a good one.
