Waxwings and more from the Wildlife Event
I was thrilled on Friday when I got to see the waxwings for myself - not the most exotic of places, Deeside Industrial Park! We soon found them - there were a few serious photographers already lined up with their huge lenses on tripods ready to photograph the waxwings as they flew down to feed on the Rowan berries. There was also an artist there sketching the birds in preparation for doing a painting in acrylics - he said he doesn't do watercolour - too difficult lol! As always Gary got some spectacular shots of them and hope you like the selection I've posted here....
Here are a few more photos from the wildlife event that was held at the shopping centre on Saturday where I sat painting the barn owl. It was nice to actually have a real barn owl there too!
It was lovely talking to passers by who stopped to watch and ask questions, including quite a few children who said they'd like to be artists when they grow up so if I gave them just a little bit of encouragement I'd be very happy - it's certainly something I'd enjoy doing again.
