Robin resting on a rather uncomfortable rose bush in the garden. I was surprised he was quite comfortable to sit here a little while

Taken with 70-300mm lens and a little noise reduction in Affinity Photo.

Looking south towards the US border crossing into Washington State

But the strong desire to physically connect with loved ones there are Canadians, Americans meeting up in tents at one corner of the Peach Arch Park that remains open as it is operated by Washington State.

Washington State portion of Peace Arch Park at Zero Avenue. The ditch is the 49N parallel which marks the border. There are Canadian Mounties posted along this section of road.

I think I passed through that border crossing, some years back, on our way to Penticton!

Hi Tord, this is was the main crossing for car traffic and is the oldest. Highly likely you must came through here on your way to Pentiton. Do you remember stopping at the seaside town, White Rock, near here? The Peace Arch was built in 1912 and as far as I know the Canada-US border has never been closed since the Treaty of Ghent ending the war of 1812!

Re: Color or bw

Bird photos where they are captured doing something is cool.

My memory plays tricks with me, evidently!

Using GMap, and talking with the wife, it is evident we passed the border elsewhere!

Going north we must have passed the border further inland, coming from Moses Lake. At Osoyoos, to be precise. And after our stay in Penticton and Kelowna, we drove west to Vancouver and took the ferry to Nanaimo, stayed there a week or so, and then visited people I met in Victoria in '67! Retired by then, of course, and then we drove to Tofino, flew around a little looking for whales (no luck), and stayed a couple of days in Victoria (quite a different city from the '67 version I lived in for some weeks as a kid). 
Then ferry from Sydney to Fidalgo Island (stayed in Oak Harbor at a crazy Dutch place) and took the ferry from Clinton to meet our Seattle friend in Mukilteo, who escorted us into the very center of Seattle where he lives on the same street as the Bigfoot and the Hendersons movie was filmed, alas a few houses further up the street from his!

The rest of our stay was spent in New England (after a week in Seattle).

Yup, you said it. Need some patient and luck. Odds increases if you are familiar with their behavior and actions.

Like this photo, I know they are breeding pair and their usual perching spot and after a while you will know their tolerances too.

There's a lot to like for me in the second image - I enjoy all the textures and the understated color.

Full Moon...

The V3 is a really versatile camera... This has no noise reduction applied. I just added contrast and a touch of unsharp mask.
Taken with the Nikon 200-500 attached via FT1

Took my V2 and Noct out on the short walk to the convenience store. It was really dark, so had to use ISO 3200 and 1/125 with -1 EV. Not pretty. But DXO's DeepPRIME sort of saved the day... er... night.

Ah! We, during lock-up, have been playing Animal Crossing: New Horizons a lot, thus we have exactly that statuette in our gardens! It says it is a racoon, but I think it is a racoon dog!

Excellent shot!
