Many thanks to Joline and Walter for the kind UA, it really cheered me up. And to you all for your generous votes and comments. I am sadly down to clicking at the moment, bit short on time.

took these swallows two weeks ago during lunch break, unfortunatley with my macro lens but the happy family just needed to be taken. Hid quickly behind a bush and got 3 shot before they were off.

Two stunning images Annette, each one fuelled with both charm, character, "And if I may say so a great slice of humour?". Variant two is simply quite masterly, the look on the little fellas face sitting quietly on the right, says it all "SHUT UPPPPPPPPPPPP" Brilliant.

Nicely done, Annette. v2 with the extra bird's expression wins.

There is a real feeling that the unfortunate listeners are quietly wishing he would shut up. They look less than interested in his rantings.Smile Ready-made for a speech or thought bubble or twoWink
