A rather frequent garden visitor admiring the local feathered population....

Thank you so very much for all your honest comments following yesterdays upload. It was so refreshing to know that you could be open and quite frank about your likes and dislikes. The image was not created to scare or shock it was created to test my PS skills to the full and give me the opportunity to push by brain to the maximum and give it a good old workout.

A further mention goes to: pdunstan_Greymoon(Paul), Brian65 (Brian), Morpheus1955 (Hugh), gwynn (GWynn) and alsoppdigitalart (John) for presenting me with their most welcomed User Awards.

I hope that you have all had a wonderful Easter Break, the sun is shining here in Lower Stoke, so who knows what the day may bring

If it had been in our garden eyeing up the birds it would have been unceremoniously 'shooed' away!! Tongue Nicely captured though, Nathan.

Though not a great fan of cats and always on the lookout to guard our local feathered pals, this is a wonderful image. Those whiskers, if my Grandmother told it right, tell all. A mouser for sure - best point this out to him/her and leave the bridies alone! TongueGrinGrin
