Good Day to you all at ePz

Thank you all so much for your wonderful comments, messages and votes following yesterdays upload of my somewhat controversial Magpie. A further mention going to ChristineD (Christine) for her User Award.

Todays image was captured in the garden simply because something attracted me to it.

I hope that you have a fantastic day, the weather promises to be good.

Regards as always NathanGrinGrinGrin
