Lovely shot Nigel!

Did you have to shoot the poppy head with your air rifle though? Or is it they have tiny woodpeckers in Spain? Tongue

A real delight to view Nigel, up to your usual consistently high standards. Many thanks for the information on the adonis blues I'll be over to Stroud again as soon as time and weather allow.

Love the poppy head "perch", it somehow seems to complement the copper, far better than any flower could.
