Weekly Pet Share: Enjoying the shade.

A neigbourly cat (1 of 1)

Here is my entry for Michelle’s Weekly Pet Share challenge.

We have quite a few cats living around us.  I am still unable to have one as part of my lease but I am quite happy to showcase a couple of neighbourly cats.  I saw this one lying in the shade of my fence.  It was a very hot day so it just plonked itself down where it could find somewhere cool to rest. I was inside and just zoomed in on it.

Thanks for visiting.

Weekly Pet Share: Hungry sparrows

Hungry Sparrows

It is that time of the week to share our photos of our pets or other furry or feathered friends.

For this week I have a couple of photos of some hungry sparrows.  I threw out some bread and within minutes the birds were gathering.  They were quite possessive and were determined that they would get the best crumbs.

It was fun watching them.  I am so impressed with my new camera.  The lens is so fast compared to my other camera.  I wouldn’t have got any photos at all.  It was soo slow.

Weekly Pet Share

Michelle has changed her pet challenge to Weekly Pet share this week.

I never found my lost camera.  It is annoying as I also lost 4 memory cards, another small camera and the bag.  I felt lost without it.

So yesterday I went out and brought the best camera that I could afford.  It was a choice between a camera and a sofa.  No choice really.  So now I am the proud owner of a Nikon Coolpix P600.  What a difference to my old camera.  So responsive and fast.  When I got home I saw the price on the box – $250  cheaper than I brought it for – I was meant to have it then.  I also got the plum coloured one.  It is smaller and lighter than my old camera and fits smugly into my hand.  So guess what I have been doing – yup, making up for lost time.

The zoom on this is great.  There is a small dial on the right that operates it which I like.  This photo was taken at maximum zoom of a thrush on the top of the house next door.  I am totally a happy chappy now.
