OK taking a quick break from all the jobs and decided to give this one an outing. More in yer face than my normal GSW shots.

More jobs now but keeping up with the gallery.

I intend to add comments to the ones that I have awarded a GEA at the end of the week.

Thanks all.

Got to get back to the jobs now, have just caught up in the gallery.

Hopefully have more time tomorrow if I can get quite a bit more done now - was hoping to play around with a new website but not to be today.

Streaks of sleet Richard. A couple of frames on and the sleet is more noticeable but the woodpecker has a dirty beak by then.

The funny thing is where this is taken this is supposed to be a feeding perch rather than a photographic one. That is, one to attract the birds in, but not photogenic in its own right. Shame the woodpeckers don't realise that as they tend to stay longest here and are closest to the hide.

Looks like frame-fillers are the order of the day, but I think I'll stick to trying the environmental look Wink

Thanks all. Thanks Pete.
