Last night I was asked to go over to a friend’s house with my camera(s) in the morning to see if I could photograph a bird that was not meant to be in Shetland.
So I duly popped over with my long lens to sit in the sunshine in their kitchen, being fed homemade cake and coffee – always a chore!
They have a beautiful garden, so the view was perfect and so was the cake.
And so we sat and sat, and chatted and sat, and waited for the rare-bird-to-Shetland to arrive.
Um…… it didn’t. No rare bird. It had obviously gone somewhere else.
So I took some photos of a mouse that made an appearance.
And went on enjoying the cake and coffee!
I never got to see the bird, Ho-hum, probably just as well.
(this photo is to prove that Wu goes outside, by the way!)
Anywho, it is not the rare bird that is important – it is the fact that I almost saw one!
Btw, The Minions are fine, in case anyone is missing Shetland pony input!
I will see what I can do tomorrow on that front.
