Caught in Flight

Chaffinch in flight

My photography is often more luck than judgement. All the more suprise when I uploaded this photo, amongst many of the Chaffinches I have in my garden. Yes – one getting ready to to and the other hovering in the air. I am still wondering how I did this.

And here is another one, a blue tit either landing or taking off. I still do not know how I did it.

It’s snowing

Towards Rötibrück, Solothurn

It all started so well, going shopping with the car. Admittedly we had a bit of snow on the pavements, but the roads were clear. Guess what? While we were in the supermarket it started to snow. That was this morning, and it snowed all day. This photo was taken about 11.30 this morning on the way home.

Result: Mr. Swiss and I are hibernating for the week-end and plans have been made to buy a week’s food supplies on Monday morning, not intending to go anywhere on our own four wheels until the end of next week.
