Welcome to the Island Rambles Blog

Hi my name is Nora and Welcome to my blog world. This is a nature and birding photo blog about Vancouver Island, B.C. Canada. I am trying to be a birder and I take photos of the birds and scenery I find. I hope you enjoy your time here and please come back again. PHOTOS WILL ENLARGE IF CLICKED. The photos are slide show enabled if you click on them. If you click on the top lighthouse photo it always takes you to the most recent summary list of my postings.

Slowly Getting Around

 Hello, I am slowly getting around to your blogs.  It will take me a while as I have come down with a cold and an infection.  Just wanted to let you know that I saw your comments and loved them and will show up at your blog as soon as I can.  It is really really nice to see all your blogs and can't wait to read them. I am so lucky to have this group of bloggers.




I took these photos with a Panasonic GH3.  I returned it and got a different one, but now I think it was one of the best cameras. It was so easy to use and had so many features.  I had trouble with the viewfinder so I got the GH4.  They removed all the features that I liked on the GH3 on the 4.  Still it is a good camera.

This post is for Today's Flowers

One day they'll make the perfect camera, until then lets just concentrate on pointing it the right way and pressing the little button at the right time! You've certainly achieved both of those things with the photos of the Swallowtail butterfly.

When I first started a blog I never for one moment thought that it would lead to friendships but that is exactly what has happened. I have been fortunate to meet up with a few bloggers (lots of people visit London) but I also feel the friendship coming across in the comments I receive. We may not be able to meet up for a coffee but you know where we are and how to reach us. We all understand how it is not always possible to reply to our comments but that doesn't matter. Just do your best to keep in touch with the posts. I have thought about your often since you went offline just so pleased you have the energy to take up the blogging again.

Cameras can be frustrating, I got a new camera and hoped it would be great but am disappointed, but still I can get some good shots with it. I hope you feel better soon, Hugs from the PNW.

I love these photographs and I hope you enjoy your camera. It always takes me a while to get used to a new one. I am sorry to hear you have been sick. These infections seem to be taking longer to clear. I had one back in the summer, so I truly sympathize. Hope you feel better soon :) Thank you for sharing with Today's Flowers :)
