A Blue Tit (Cyanistes caeruleus) perching on a New Zealand Flax (Phormium tenax) seed pod, against the red Autumn foliage of an Acer shrub in our garden.

Thank you all so much for your generous support of my last upload, with special thanks to Mike (Greyheron) and Ed (Glostopcat) for their User Awards - all really appreciated and valued Smile

That acer of your's provides such a vibrant and contrasting backdrop for this sort of subject, Sylvia.
Top notch work in every sense.
