Be better if I could figure out a reliable way of cleaning my phone's lens... :)

Hmmm. When Rick dug up his old camera case, I found a packet of Kodak lens cleaning paper. Would something like that work? Oh, maybe not, it says for glass surfaces.

Phone shops & camera stores seem equally befuddled...

Well, I just experimented on the LCD screen on my Nikon. The lens paper moistened with Lens Cleaner Formula IV (also found in said bag) and gently wiped, then gently dried with the lens paper worked beautifully. I'm surprised there isn't some sort of recommended product out there. Of course, cleaning instructions for Nikon were "wipe gently with a soft cloth".

The lens seems to suck dirt from other dimensions - it can be clean, sitting all shut up, going nowhere, doing nothing. I open it & lo! Lint, fluff & grit a-go-go... oh well... only need put up with it's perplexities for another few months... :)

The free flight bird show at Toronga zoo in Sydney is amazing, they get birds like this to swoop over your head - well trained - beautiful. Oh yeah, all of this with the Opera house, Bridge and harbour in the background WOW.

These guys usually do free flying displays but this was more of a meet & greet event, letting kids get up close with the owls & so on.
I think they visited my friend's school not long ago. If it is the same team, they open their school presentation with an Eagle Owl who flies in from the back of the hall, over the heads of all the tiny primary school children, as the handler is about to start his talk at the front. The kids absolutely love it - one of those gratifying moments of childhood wonder & of course, it's like Harry Potter, having owls flying in their school hall... :)
