Did I mention my new camera yet? I finally got a Nikon. For any self-respecting photographer, this is the tool to aim for (apart from maybe the Leica and the Hasselblad). It was always way too expensive for me. As I don’t need it for work, I am just a leisure shooter nowadays. But last Christmas: tataaaa my first ever Nikon. I am still in the process of trying out all the features.
This time: birdwatching. I confess, I have yet to find the advantage in using the birdwatching programme over the regular picture-taking setting. I haven’t noticed any difference, so far.
What I do notice now, are the birdies. I have not paid much attention to the common birds, so far. They were there, often a tad too noisy in the mornings. And sometimes, they ended up being the catch of the day for my cat Lilly. But they are quite nice.
Where will this end? Me being out and about in rubber boots, a multi-pocketed vest and a safari-style hat, spyglass at hand and my camera ready, as is the general bird-watcher cliché? I fear the worst…
