Day 5

Baby Dove has finally got a name. We decided to call her/him MICRO. It was a fitting name with all the photos taken through the Macro lens. It was taken with a medical Micro Nikkor 60mm f2.8. All the doctors use it in labs for very accurate photography – one of the sharpest lenses in the world. So, now you know why my photographs are so spectacular – it is to do with this very special lens – and the best teacher in the world too (my hubby!!)

Ok, so Micro is looking more and more like a dove. She is preening and plucking daily and has the cutest little peep – calls me from a distance! Well fed and perky, makes for a very content baby bird. She now knows she has wings and we did a first flight practice today. Hannes had her on his finger and got her flapping. Very tired baby afterwards! It was a tough flying lesson. She is now fed and in her box for a little snooze.
