A great title for a cute capture, Sylvia Smile I thought you had a gnat in the image, too, but then I discovered it was on my screen Grin Carol

Very appropriate title given it's 'perch', Sylvia, and a very fine capture.

Super image Sylvia and I love the detail on the "string perch" - certainly adds that certain something to the image. Lou
