I must have been a VERY good girl last year as father Christmas gave me a new camera, a Canon EOS 5D ll … so begins a love affair!


This is a Red Browed Finch. More information on these little birds can be found here

Canon EOS 5D ll
Canon L Series 100-400mm lens

Thank you as always for looking :)

    Congratulations on the new gear, Tania! Santa did good on the choice! TOp shot too btw. Have fun!

  • Peter Santa is obviously a Canon man and what great taste he has!! I just have to learn how to drive the 5D ll which will be a labour of love I’m certain!

    Happiness in 2011 to you & yours :)
