On Thursday we had an hour of sunshine (conveniently when I could take my break) , the wind was very cold and near Mr Nadaud's wall some courageous bees and bee-flies had ventured out to explore the dandelion situated leeward of the wall.

Many thanks for all your kind votes and comments, especially to Isabel for the UA

No birds today although I got my first green woodpecker but the light was so bad that I don't dare to upload it.

A nice brought sunny set, the flying insect in V 2 so well captured but it"s V 3 with the selective focusing that really catches my eye.

A lovely, sunshine filled trio. Love V2 - looks like he's taking part in something out of the Olympics! We've had sunshine 2 days running. Mind you, it still manage to provide a couple of snow showers as well. Such strange weather!

Not only an excellent imitation of sunshine, but the appropriate Easter colour too, Annette.

We have the real sun out here, but the temperatures are minus 6-7 at night and creep above zero during the day, so a while before we get any flowers and their guests.Smile
