Not doing a great deal. (1 Viewer)

I'm feeling very frustrated at the moment as I am too busy to do any photography. I have a lot of gardening to do and not only does this prevent me from getting the camera out, it also keeps the birds away!
I have, I think, solved most of the technical problems of using flash for bird "portraiture" and have even incorporated a refelctor at the side of the perch which the birds have readily accepted. The only thing is I've ot had much chance to make use of it.
The quality of the photos I have got really pleases me and I must put a few up on the Gallery.
I received a phone call from my sister in Norwich this morning. She was really just gloating as she has had two new visitors to her garden. Not only has she got a few Siskins, but also a Nuthatch!! The two species I set out to attract this winter and she gets them first.
Ah well, there's still time. If I get the gardening done this week (hedge cutting mainly), I might get chance to get a nice portrait of a long-tailed tit.
