Life through the Lens (12 December 2021)

When my eyesight was still good, I was a bit of an amateur photographer. This is one of mine.

    1. Robin. One of the few who hang around in the winter, and a popular Christmas image. Very territorial – they’ll fight each other to the death – and the only time you generally see two together is if they’re courting.

          1. Thank you for weighing-in. Bumper knows I ran right away to see what “extended family” the robin I’m accustomed to seeing (and detesting) stateside there might be. Lest you wonder, detest: popular lore and most photos show the “American” robin with a worm in its beak. In truth, robins love to decimate cherry trees, raspberries, blackberries, and blueberries and other plants we gardeners work to cultivate – never eating the whole fruit, simply poking holes and ruining a lot of harvest. Factually, I’d as soon the nasty creatures leave the worms alone too. I consider Robins airborne moles, vermin. The pictured creature, I hope less noxious.

        1. That was actually a point and shoot I used to keep in my bag and take up to London each day. It was a Canon G14, I think. Tiny, but one of the best on the market for that type of camera. It shot in RAW, which is the same as SLRs. Far superior to jpg.

          But this is probably fifteen years ago.

    1. They can be quite tame when there’s food around. Like me, I suppose!

      This was a place called St James’s Square, right in the middle of London. Just over the road is St. James’s Park. In my lunchtimes, I used to hand nuts out to the squirrels there.
