Hello, bird world!

Hi everyone,

A very amateur hobbyist photographer here (<1 week!), just learning how to use the thing. People and birds seem to be the best (i.e. easiest) subjects for me to capture at the moment, and I seem to be getting fewer strange looks when long-lensing birds, so that's where my attention will be focused. Unfortunately I know next to nothing about birds, but I'm very keen to learn!

Hi Manix and a warm welcome from me too.

All things Scottish can be found here. Also, keep an eye on threads titled something like Scottish Bashes; we try to meet up occasionally and they're always great fun. You'd be most welcome to join us on another if you can manage.

.... and I hope we'll be able to see some of your pictures in the Gallery too.
