This is wondering is there really someone there?

Set Up: for Dave missed from first one on
Friends dining room... french windows opened, netting taped up and across
Comfy chair, coffee and the use of her lens to try
Then await for the wildlife to search out the hidden seed
Hey presto...this mini series! must say the hedge behind helps and different perches plus the coffeeWinkWink

Hope that you like this one
and thanks for comments yesterday
