Back to the birds tonight. A Goldfinch taken on Sunday in the wind & rain perched on a small olive tree I have in a planter - my little bit of Greece in my back garden.
Many thanks to John for his User Award on the little gecko giving us all a lesson in eyeball licking!
Thanks for the C&C's on last nights image of Bala Lake - much appreciated as I am still (very) trying in that area of photography!
Another bad day at work today - but at least I do have a job so can't moan too much!
Take care all, Lou

A lovely capture, Lou, how nice to have a little olive tree thriving for you. Have to admit, I get very tired of seeing olive trees, there isn't much else here Grin Carol
