Beautiful Birds

One of the things I love about my garden are the birds. I tend to just enjoy having them around and chatting to them when they are hopping around me while I am working in the garden. If I happen to have my camera with me when they are around I will attempt to take a picture, but I don’t have the lens to do a good job so my photos tend to be a bit of a hit and miss affair. We quite often have visitors in the garden who love photographing the birds. At Open Gardens we had a couple who took some wonderful photos of the Paradise Flycatcher. They returned later and took some equally wonderful photos of the Batis. They kindly sent me some of their pics which they were happy for me to put on the Blog. I’m sure you will enjoy them as much as I do.
