Nice to see this as I hasven't seen one of these this year in our own garden and they used to be quite a common visitor. Maybe doing something wrong to attract them....Phil

Saw the first one Ann and passed it by as it was very dark around the eye area, but this is a cracker. Lovely sharp detail and super colours and light.
