And Then There Were...

Aren't they lovely. I have just been reading about Robins after you printed these pics.
I didn't know the eggs were blue and it takes between 11-14 to hatch. They ususally lay between 2-4 eggs, so you may have some more.
Please let us know how they get on.
Beautiiful colour aren't they?

Hi Annette, I'll be keeping track of them! The White House has a new family of robins. Evidently that nest was in a rather busy entrance area as well.

Beautiful colour photo deb. Mine look so pale compared to yours.
I have a Blackbird building close to my window. The only way to get a photo is through the glass, but I'll post one up if I manage it.

Bernard, it took me a while to get used to the settings on a digital camera. At least you're free to experiment without incurring costs! Anyway, sometimes they come out good, sometimes not.

Deb, My camera came with all the instructions on a disc. I therefore have to have the computer on to read them or print them all out.
I have yet to find out what all the symbols mean.

Huh, that's no fun.

I find that I use 'landscape' for most shots. It's a little mountain range symbol on my camera. On occasion I will use close-up (a tulip symbol). If I think I made need flash, I set it on A, for automatic, rather than flash. Flash gives me other things I have to set up and for the most part, I don't want to be bothered.

Many times I will take a photo at several settings and then pick out the best result. I do very little editing on the computer other than some cropping.

I'm still 'flying on autopilot'.
It will have to do for the moment.
I'll read up on it one day..Thanks
