Hi all,
Firstly I apologize to everyone about my absence and lack of critiques, I am in my last year of GCSE'S and everything is very busy. I hope to get in when I can and add my comments to your photos.
Secondly, I got a new camera, Canon 7D, this weekend for my birthday and immediately wanted to get some pictures. I went out to the Spinnies (Aber Ogwen), one of my favourite nature reserves and it was full of life. There were ducks, tits, finches, a nuthatch and the elusive kingfisher made an appearance, finally, although I got no photo of that :(. All in all a very good weekend then :).
This is one of the photos I got of a moorhen while playing about with all the settings on the 7D, those of you with one should know what I mean :).
Thanks for looking and I appreciate all comments.

Hello Sion,
Hope you'll be doing fine. Yes, long time, no see. I am so glad to catch you here. I was missing from this site too and have not yet returned comments to comments after my come back but friends do come and watch and this means a lot. Congratulations for celebrating a brand new birthday and also for the gift of a fine, fine camera. Don't leave it anywhere unattended and if it goes missing, there should be no doubt who took it away.
Now the photo, what a fine shot of this wonderful, familiar waterfowl. It is a fine first effort and I appreciate it. Thanks a lot for sharing this and yes, good luck with your studies....take care...warmest regards/Abid
