    Good shot David :) Do these little birds make those whistling/chirping sounds? I'm pretty sure i have heard them make those sounds before.

    More information contestant ;-)
    They do make a noise, but I've not yet learnt it. I can recognise various small birds by their call, but not this one (yet).

    So well captured David, looks like he is ready to take off again
    (It looks like someone needs to call out "theif, theif" )lol
  • David de Groot said:
    Thanks James :)
    Sure is Adam :)
    hehehe He hung upside down for a bit and gobbled these berries.

    Its good but I'm thinking we need bigger lenses!!
  • SkattyKat said:
    lol Ross, think I suggested a while ago you guys take your wives out to dinner "together" & hit them with it ...... It would need to be somewhere really really nice though I should imagine lol
  • David de Groot said:
    Yep, much bigger ;-) I'm thinking 800mm :)
    (of course this would involve buying lotto tickets)
    I don't think one dinner would cut it ;-)
  • SkattyKat said:
    lol - David, you are probably very right there, but may I suggest you practice , practice, practice until you get it right (wear her down lol)

    Hey, do you know how much I've spent on Dave this week?
    (What, no one told you the wife lurks here? ;))
    You just start buying those lotto tickets, hon. And keep dreaming. Its good for you :-P
  • SkattyKat said:
    lol Lea I have seen your comments (& had a big smile to myself) many a time !!
    You have a lovely husband there & I reckon behind every good man there's an even better woman !!!
  • SkattyKat said:
    and I can only imagine how much you have spent on him this week - lol
  • leadegroot said:
    :) Its the theory I work on! ;)
    (And don't worry, I plan on making him earn every cent of it. Hehehe ;))
  • SkattyKat said:

    My wife might not follow me on flickr, but she certainly controls the camera budget! No big lenses for me :-(
