Superb capture again Sylvia and great turn of the head with food.
That perch is superb and look forward to seeing a variation on it, just get the screwdriver out and remove the screw head Smile
Binned nearly all the shots today Sad

Too late for a variation on the perch Richard - filled the hole started by the GSW with peanut butter, GSW didn't show but the next day he must have visited and demolished the perch - found it in pieces on the grass!! LOL
Binned nearly all my yesterday's shots too :-( Never mind, win a few, lose a few!
