Another one from the garden. Still havent managed to capture him in really good light.
The background is a forsythia hedge and the splashes of yellow are its flowers. Its times like this that i'd like a faster lens!
Hope you like it.
I must apologise if you've only had a vote and no comment, been very busy but i will try and make a mends (her in doors is running me ragged in the garden, its very stressful lol!!)
Thanks for your c&c's on my previous uploads, most appreciated.

I'm going through the same thing Shaun, garden, washing up, repairs
Great images of the GSW, I think the light works well as its how you would expect to see them in a subdued wood etc

Same here with gardening Shaun, will be glad when we have sold up and moved into another place with a smaller garden Wink
Another 2 superb shots and I am so envious, tried to compete today but with a bigger Kingfisher Smile must say both shots have lovely detail and color, difficult to choose a favourite,

I've had the same type of week-end, don't wives understand we are photographers, not gardeners?
2 nice images with good colour and detail in both.
Although #1 is as taken, I find I am twisting my head to view it, may have worked better rotated in portrait format.
