 Remember to keep the eye in focus, then the rest will fall into place.

I'm getting a bluddy obsession wiv eyes!

More fantastic shots from you, Nikki.....thank you.

Higgy - I agree, keeping your eyes open (I should talk) is very important.....opportunities sometimes arise when you least expect them.

I've just joined our county bird club which will offer (members only) access to reservoirs and other bird sanctuaries.....so looking forward to that in the coming months.

KEF - Please don't lose heart, your  efforts are really appreciated here and no less welcome than anyone elses.  .

Higgy - loving your sunsets.....a secret ambition of mine is a winter visit to the Shetland Isles to take sunrises/sunsets.

KEF - Thank you for your variegated holly pic, certainly well in focus. Your little Coolpix has the potential to take really good shots.....certainly as good as those costing three times as much, not too long ago.....explore the options in 'scene'.

Finally, I would just like to say that following my recent op, I had a very moving best wishes PM from a lady who just reads this thread and because she doesn't enjoy the best of health doesn't contribute.

She informs me that not only does she get a tremendous amount of pleasure from looking at our photographs, she is staggered by the quality and the expertise of those posting them......so well done you lot!

Hi, folks....op over,  fit & well again - many thanks for your kind wishes. Unfortunately, the nature of the beast dictates that I need to wear an eye patch for another couple of days & avoid eye strain.....so I'll be limiting my browsing time.

Anyway, congratulations on your recent pics (I'm squinting)......and, KEF, Ann is quite right, press your Coolpix shutter button down until resistance is felt, this focuses your shot before pressing it down fully. If you press down fully, your shots will be out of focus slightly.
