Jackdaw cleaning station...

By Fred263
Thanks for your clicks, comments & votes to my previous image for which I'm most appreciative. .

I hope you may like my offering for s.Sunday which was taken at Bushy Park last week with Lillian & friends. Jackdaws provide an important service to the deer by removing parasites from parts of their bodies which cannot be easily reached.. In return, they enjoy the snack & nourishment .. quid pro quo and everyone is happy.SmileSmile A strict queuing system is followed & queue jumping is not allowed. I tried to use use speech bubbles and didn't find it easy with my newer version of PS Elements.Blush

Thanks for looking and have a great day wherever you are.

Fascinating. What causes the queue? Is it a shortage of jackdaw cleaners or is it because the deer don't space their arrival times?
