When I'm with my family in France
we often drive to a neighbouring village
park the car and enjoy an amble through
the little lanes and walkways.
I always have my camera
and snap away at all manner of things that take my eye.
Walls, fences, gates, doors, shutters
winding lanes and gardens.
One of my granddaughters has a small
nature set which includes a magnifying glass,
an insect reference book and pencil.
She has great observation skills
and looks for signs of animals as well as insects,
birds and butterflies.
My father would love to know his great grandie
has an interest in nature as he was a
keen botanist and bird watcher!
When I was young he often took my brothers and I
on hikes in the bush, telling us the names of
birds, trees, plants, mosses and lichens.
As children we weren't that interested and
preferred climbing the trees or playing
hide and seek.
However, as I got older it became an inherant
part of my life too.

Thank you for your camera suggestions
I'm narrowing my choices now thanks to you
my dear bloggy pals!
From what most of you have said
it's all about the lenses rather than the camera body.
Take care and
be kind to one another
