In Our Pollution of Nature

Posted Sunday 6th September 2009 at 01:59 by Francis Duggan
We fear and we worship our God in the sky
And we insult our great Goddess who lives nearby
Yet without her we would not have life to enjoy
And the beauty of Nature we choose to destroy

We are told that food crops on the Moon or on Mars will not grow

The House Sparrows

And renowned for their chirping they chirp all the day

Around human dwellings they are happy to stay
Of shyness and lack of self confidence house sparrows are free
And on their worth or lack of worth some choose to disagree....

So out came the camera with 70-300mm tameron zoom ...........Perfect! Sit in the garden, watch the birds and take some pics. Especially on lovely sunny days.

Goodness its been a long time since I started this blog ........only one post and 2 months later.............here I am!!
So lets start at the very begining its a very good place to start ............not another song again? Sorry!
I have always loved wildlife but have never had a lot of luck at close encounters with anything. A sighting of fleeting foxes and deer just flashing out of sight. Then suddenly realised the most accessible form of wildlife as ancient as dinosaurs themselves,...
