  1. Great photos, Lucie, I wish I had been there to pick up a couple of books I still want to read. The pictures of birds are incredible too. I have learned so much from your photos, Mr. Defoe, on what to look for in my own backyard . You are an inspiration to take up bird photography! Thanks to both of you .
