Thanks a lot Gerry,it took some doing lol, I spent about 4 or 5 hrs in my hide with the camera on the tripod and had a small hole to look through to wait for something to land on the perch in the right position ,the slightest movement and they are off, don't they realize it's me that feeds them lol , alls I ask is they sit nice for me lol ........like watching paint drying lol , too hot to sit today.

Thanks a lot everyone !!!
