I battled to get onto the internet this morning. Smile I grew up on a farm in the northern bushveld of South Africa and there I got to know this bird as a Yellow Finch. Now I live in the Western Cape and they are called Yellow Weavers Smile In any case this guy made a first appearance on my feeder about a week ago Smile
Thanx so much for the votes and comments on my Hibiscus and a big thanx to Fred [ Badgerfred] for his treasured UA !!
Have a great day !!

Good portrait, Herman!Smile
By the way: Weavers are the most skilled builders of nests. They learned not only twisting, but also to link the nodes of the plant fibers and grasses.Smile

He's very yellow, wouldn't have a clue as to his name, but as usual you have done him proud here............... I hope you are looking after yourself Herman, irregular heart beat is like going to a concert and all the orchestra are playing to their own rhythm and out of tune.

It was a long day today, strange experiences as they pumped in the drugs; the objective was to simulate how my heart responds under conditions of exercise, normally they would put you on a treadmill, but they can't do that to me because I have M.E. There I was totally relaxed on a nice comfy couch and all of a sudden I was exhausted without lifting a finger............ Weird. The scan was pretty simple.............. Got to go through it all again next Monday, but I think only the radioactive drug will be used because this time they want pictures of my heart at rest.
