    brilliant capture … you must have one fantastic garden Roy with lots of bird attracting plants, you always get such wonderful bird shots !

  • Many thanks Annette. Actually we back onto a native forest of many acres and don’t have too many flowers in the garden. My bird feeding trays and fruit are what attract them out of the woods.

  • Thank you also for the favourite – I do appreciate it.
