Here’s my tenth and final answer to the list of questions in Stephanie Fox’s Travel Whispers Blogger Challenge:

10. Share your favourite Instagram photo of 2016?

I can’t say that I’m a huge Instagrammer. Usually when for the rare times when:
• I don’t have a serious camera with me
• I want to broadcast something immediately
• I want to make a note of the location or occasion.

Usually, I just take a photo with whatever camera I have with me, and if it’s the iPhone, I usually just share directly from the camera roll.

Not really my favourite picture of 2016, but this shot gained so many more likes than any other within the last year, that I’ll share it.

A fledgeling magpie, very young with some down still showing. It showed very little fear, allowing me to get very close. Usually, young magpies are very vocal – and large – continually demanding food from their parents. Odd to see one by itself with no family members present.
