Good day to you all...

Thank you all so very much for wonderful response that you gave my RGB Series, it was certainly a worthwhile photographic adventure. A special mention goes to Chrissie3 (Chrissie) and Franken (Ken) for their most welcomed User Awards following yesterdays last in the series upload.

Todays three were captured a little while ago as you can see from the beautiful blue sky. They show one of the many Jackdaws which live in the village, this particular one likes to have a little dance. "Maybe the Chimney was hot?"

I hope that you all have a wonderful day what ever you get up to.

Regards Nathan GrinGrinGrin

Three lovely images of one of my favourite birds. I used to have one of these guys visit me. It used to tap on the window to be let in then it would sit on my head. I soon learned to remove all jewellery before it came in!
