Spent an hour or so between lessons today freezing to death getting a few shots, and they say spring is on the way??!!.
The blossom seemed to think that warmer times are on the way, although the birds seemed to think otherwise.
I think John (casson) can back up how cold it was, I will keep my eyes open for the blossom John!!

Many, many thanks for comments received yesterday, I was very grateful for the kindness shown.

thank you and I hope you are all well.

Beautiful image, the pink of the blossom really sets off the blues in the bird. Excellent detail and superb composition.

Hello Phil, Yes it was cold and did not get any warmer by lunch time. I waited for ages but did not get a bird to land on that blossom, you must have the magic touch.
