I was reading a book yesterday and heard this chap singing so loudly out in the garden. He was so engrossed in his work that I was able to get quite close. I took 40 pictures and this is the one I liked best. I'm sure he thinks its Spring.

He may think it's spring, but for those who know the flowers will indicate a winter mood. A fine catch of the bird in song, well framed by the perch.
