Hi everyone, these guys are still around at the moment and I have now seen 3 together, haven't spotted the female for a few day's though, she's probably at home looking after things while they fly around looking pretty all day Wink
Many thanks to those of you that took time out to view and vote on my previous upload and a special thank you to Brian (bricurtis) for the UA on my Wren, really appreciated,
Regards,
Geoff.

He looks so dapper, but it's no wonder if he has competition. Hope the female doesn't need a DNA test on her offspringGrin!

Fabulous shot, detail colour and a great background - top notch!

I am lucky enough to get them coming in my garden too and mates are green when i tell them I have multiple numbers coming in at the same time - best I have had is 5 males & 4 females..remarkable really as there is one small tree in my garden that isn't even mature. My bonus being nothing out the back of the house apart from tree n stuff..lol Grin
