Good Morning to you all

Thank you so very much for all your wonderful comments and votes following yesterdays upload "Babbling Brook"

Todays image was captured a little while ago whilst observing the comings and goings of the local birds through my study window.

I hope that you all have a great day, for me who knows the sun is shining, my shutter finger is twitching and Kizmet is snapping at my heels.

Regards as always Nathan GrinGrinGrin

It's good to have time to observe wildlife habits - we're usually too busy to 'stop and stare'.
Hope you, Kizmet and the camera get out and about.
