The weather has pretty wet and as a consequence natural light has not been good for painting, so I have been fiddling about with other things. I have just acquired a wireless remote release for my camera and I am hoping that this will enable me to take some closeup shots of some wildlife. They shouldn't be spooked if I'm not close by, but hopefully they will ignore the camera. These are some shots I took in the garden to test the setup. They are Goldfinches who seem pretty keen to eat all the Niger seeds that I can supply greedy little blighters.
