My Husband Bill and I have been birding since 1986, and although we are birders at heart, I enjoy photography immensely even though I am just a novice. The first few years of my attempts at photography was with a Canon 400D SLR, using Canon 35-80, Canon 40-75WA and Tokina 80-400 Zoom lenses. Last year I changed my camera to a Canon 7D SLR and changed the Tokina lens to a Sigma 150-500 Zoom. I had a practice run with the 150-500 zoom in Llandudno in October 2013, then took it to Sri Lanka in February 2014. I still have the Canon 400D body and tend to keep it with the wide angle lens, handy for scenic shots without having to change lenses.

Some of my images are not particularly good, not sharp or perfect focus, but for me it's about the bird so if the image isn't good, the bird is, and that's why it would have been included in the website - birder at heart !! hope you enjoy aprilsavianimages, and thankyou for visiting my site.
