  5. That's a shame, I think it would have been brilliant. He looks just about ready to kill someone and not at all frightened!

  6. Fab photos. Those eyes drill straight through you! I too, can't believe how calm he seems.

  8. What an absolute privilege to be able to hold a bird like that - wonderful. The picture is fantastic - you can see right into his beak. What camera did you use?

    1. It's really nothing special, just a small digital Canon Ixus 90IS. We'd hardly used it until I started the blog - now it's red hot!

    2. Well, i can tell you that shot puts professional cameras to shame! I am totally envious! Also, looking at some of the other photographs on your site, the Ixus is doing a sterling job.
