    2. Actually I'm not an artist, but when I have free time, I enjoy painting. I like to be anonimous on the Internet.

  4. Délicate boule de plumes colorées comme un arc en ciel, appelé Martin-pêcheur en France, est un magnifique oiseau dont la vivacité le rend difficile à saisir en photo, si l'on ne sais pas avoir de patience pour l'attendre. Ce n'est pas ton cas, mon cher Bob, dont les affûts savants nous valent de si belles photos dont je me réjouis avec tous tes fans.
    Bon Dimanche.
    Amicalement.

  17. Your kingfishers are so much more colourful than ours. I occasionally watch a British show called Halcyon River Diaries. http://oasishd.ca/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=277#
    A recent episode (at least it was recent here) was about your beautiful kingfishers.

  18. Oh. I have read of Kingfishers, and my mother (who was English) told me of them. And neither the books nor my mother exaggerated their beauty.
