Happy Birthday

By CaroleS
A yellowy-green flower, but the hover likes them! Happy birthday Isabel, have a good day.

Thank you all for your comments and votes on Chan, although the jury is out as to whether it is a Jackdaw or Carrion Crow. In different light its neck is grey and its eye is white/blue so at the moment I am falling on the side of Jackdaw. I must get some more shots of it.

Best wishes

Chan is 100% Jackdaw, the Carrion Crow is much bigger and their beaks are thicker and longer.............SmileSmileSmileSmile
