Once again taken from my arm chair hide, this time I at least had the patio door open. This guy spent about ten minutes or so in
the shade of the pot, happy to pose and chat. Three images in reverse order.

Thabk you for yesterdays views on ' I've lost her Dummy ', and especially to Peter (ddolfelin) and Patricia (pentaxpatty) for
their UA's very grateful to you both.

The start of a new week, I hope its a happy one for you all GrinGrinGrin

From V1-V3:

You put your left foot down
You lie yourself on the ground
And start scowling all about..."

Superb shots, Peter, especially the first two!
