Stormcock, double glazing and glazed AF




a long story originating with a cork tipped shuttlecock my camera eye, a possible detached retina, hospitals and eye drops and glazed vision ending up with dark glasses looking out of the living room window and trying to decide whether the creamy blob on the house roof across the road was in fact a Mistle Thrush - it was and descended with its mate to chase off the Blackbirds from the berry laden bush -- I was almost tempted to get the camera out when amazingly one of the Mistles flew across the road and landed on the small cotoneaster right outside my room window; the photos are testament to the AF of the 1DIIN and the 300 2.8 and the quality of our double glazed windows as I couldn't see if anything was in focus and left it all to the camera and hope! 
And hopefully all is well with the eye

Sorry to hear about your eyes and vision, but it hasn't effected your ability to focus in on objects and take great pictures of them. I love your waxwing header above too. Hope you recover quickly.

awesome shots. It must be frightening not having full use of the eye. Hope you recover fully soon.
