  1. Here ,we never seen blackbird 😢soo baadd, but I have placed water pot in my gallery so that every morning I can enjoy legions and sparrows ,someti!es parrots as well.😀

    1. You are lucky to see parrots, not something that exists here. What are legions? Pigeons maybe with a finger slip! Have a good day Diane

  2. I enjoy bird watching, too bad I do not have a good camera. Your birds images are great. Beautiful flowers. Love the carpenter bee enjoying the nectar. Have a great day!

    1. I agree that birds and insects are much easier with a good camera and lens. I use my Nikon mostly for that. Out walking though, or driving in the car, I use only the little Samsung point and take and it does pretty well. Nothing wrong though with your photos you are good at close ups especially food. Enjoy your day Diane
