Many thanks for the kind comments and clicks on the LTT and to Lillian for the modification - Little change with the water leak damage.

Today I am sharing a delightful time sitting under a tree of the lake I go fishing in amongst the wrens and chiffchaffs - The wrens were taken with the panasonic (handheld), and the chiffchaffs witht the Canon D50 with the Sigma 50-500mm lens (On a tripod) - I hope you enjoy these offerings
