You did well to get this shot Trev, beautiful birds aren't they.

Next time you come up we'll have to trick them into landing on a perch near the feeder Wink
Well done.

Geoff.

A bright colourful bird captured at take off: very well timed shot, Trev, with fine detail in head and one wing but movement in the other.

I think the feeder is excusable here with such a wonderful wing display.
The b/g is harmonious with the bird's colouring which adds to the overall appeal.
Great capture of this beautiful bird.

What glorious golden colour in this beautiful little birds plumage Trev, I don't normally like shots of birds on/ close to feeders being a bit of a purist but this is a real belter
