In the rain

But he sure made a beautiful pic. In most of your other shot's the birds seem to have an inquisitive expression in their eyes I guess it's because of the large diameter lens the C8080 uses, but some how it looks like my little friend here is to upset to take notice.

Hi Fons, I set the camera up and it started to rain, I have a home made rain hood to protect the camera so I left it out. The rain continued all night some of the poor birds looked half drowned and must have been fed up with it all I am sure.

Kerland I set up the bird table under the trees to protect the birds and food from the rain but after such a heavy rainfall it eventually worked its way onto birds and food.
