We have a digital SLR (single lens reflex) camera, and I put the glasses in front of the lens. Fortunately they were big enough to cover the whole of the front of the lens, and reduce the glare all over the picture.

It's my pleasure! Taking the sun's reflection one this weekend was not really a chore - although the air was chilly, it was fantastic to get some sun.

I mentioned to Blakestyger elsewhere that we get Black Kites and Hoopoes along the Rhine - I forgot to mention that we also have Beeeaters too - I think that we're on the northern-most extent of its natural distribution.....

Is this the only word with 3 consecutive e's?

I think that you're right Karen - It should be Bee Eater. But hey, hey?

Here is a sunset from behind where I live - across the corn fields and into France.

No, but I do live in a very agricultural part of Germany - vineyards to the east, corn, tobacco, strawberries and asparagus elsewhere.

Look, a rainbow around the Sun! Unfortunately, I could not get any closer as my eyes were all watery from the sunlight. [:-'(] [:-'(]
