Taken with a Canon 50D, Tamron 90mm prime lens, F9 shutter speed 1/500 second ISO200, edited in Photoshop

This little fella made me laugh!! We were having some lunch at Castle Howard, whilst eating our soup and a bread roll we threw a few crumbs for this chap, he scoffed them greedily. Not content with this he then hopped around the far side of the table several times stuck him beak in my girlfriends untouched creamed scone, had a nibble, and then flew off……it amused me greatly!!

Please view large!!
