Thank you to Christinecilia for giving me her valued user award on my previous picture of the Otter, always appreciated.
My new lens came today, so i am pleased with that, only trouble is all the Butterflies and bugs have gone for the winter, so i will have to think of other things i can take with a dedicated macro.

Today i have a Great Spotted Woodpecker
