One ought not need an umbrella on a day like this

I came home from work this afternoon and sat myself down on the front deck with my laptop, and a coffee, in the sunshine.

We have sunshine on the front deck in winter because the liquid amber tree very considerately sheds all its leaves to let the light through. There’s only a smattering of yellow left on there now.

Anyway, there I was, minding my own business, when suddenly I was under attack from above.

Ow. Who did that? Oh. There you are…

Bird at the very top of the tree
Looking up through the branches of the liquid amber at a distant bird shaped shadow.

I need a better camera.

*switches to Caitlin’s camera* Gotcha! There’s the seed-pod hurling red-feathered menace!

Caught red-feathered!

    1. Thanks 🙂

      I love having a decent camera on my phone, I take so many more photos by virtue of having it with me all the time. Hope your camera makes its way back home soon!

  1. The blue sky looks beautiful. I use the camera on my phone for most things but dream about buying a DSLR. By dream I mean not paying the mortgage:)

    1. I sort of covet a DSLR but I know we wouldn’t use it enough to justify the cost, when it comes to cameras if it doesn’t fit in a pocket there’s no point in us having it!
