The beauty that surrounds us on a daily basis should make us stop and let it catch our breath. I have the delight to be living in an area where we have an abundance of birds that are resident in our garden. You can read more about them on Trevor’s Birding.

I also love taking photos of them. You can see more of my photos on my photo gallery here.
