I arrived in Germay this past Tuesday to wind, rain, and cloudy skies. The conditions haven’t been ideal for photography, and the birds are staying quite high up in the trees, so I haven’t taken many photos with my Nikon DSLR. I’ve done a bit more with my iPhone and am posting on my Instagram account.
The photos below were taken with my Nikon with the exception of the Eurasian Nuthatch, which was taken through my binoculars with my Phone Skope adapter with a binocular ring.

There are hundreds of Snowdrops (Galanthus nivalis) growing in my aunt’s garden,
One of the many old fruit trees growing in the yard; there are apple trees as well as cherry, pear, and hazelnut trees on the property,
A Eurasian Nuthatch in the garden the other morning,
A very out-of-focus photo of a Common Blackbird, which is closely related to the American Robin,
Many old farmyards had a bakehouse with a big oven inside. This one is no longer in use, but still possesses a lot of charm,
