Having looked at your blogspot, it seems you moved north.
I just remember all the snowy scenes from the bus windows etc. and thought you must live in Canada or Alaska.

Thanks EdMak.
If you print them, you gotta frame them. Drawing pins don't look as cute. Big Grin

Nice shots NT73, where were they taken? Are you a Falconer? We have a Raptor sanctuary here in Alberta... I go there and take pics - did post some on here too... and I have framed some... drawing pins really are not the way Big Grin

Kind regards

Not a falconer, but I go on days out with a couple of friends, to see wildlife. Getting good shots in the wild is a bit difficult without the long lenses, so the wildlife parks help out.
The first two and the last were taken at an owl rescue centre near Wigan (where we had hands on flying, of about ten birds from the glove) and the Roller was at Lotherton Hall in a cage.
I usually go to the zoo in Fuerteventura when on holiday there annually. (Kite flying is a hobby too. The string and paper ones Big Grin )
