This little fella and I have nearly fallen out with each other...........every time I spot him he's off at breakneck speed............this image took me 4 weeks to nail............patience is a virtue they say...........GrinGrinGrinGrin

Thank you to Brian17302 for his UA on the Greenfinches............greatly appreciated.....Grin
