Splish splash I was takin a bath...

By NDODS    
A series of images depicting a male black bird who frequents my garden taking a bath.

Thank you for all your wonderful and thoughtful comments with a special mention going to Netta1234 for her User Award

Well my visitors head off home today, it has been great having them around for the long weekend. The bungalow will certainly be much quieter, which in some ways is rather sad.

I hope that you all have a great day ahead.

Regards as always Nathan

A really enjoyable mouseover sequence. The star of the show just has to be V6, though I must admit that the accusatory expression in V4 isn't far behind!

Not too sure that I would fancy any open air bathing just now, but this wee bird is certainly having fun. Well captured set Nathan. Moira

A stunning sequence here, Nathan, excellently captured. Can see this as a great little slideshow with the relevent splashing noises coming through nice 'birdie' music SmileSmile

Every shot a winner Nathan, he does seem to be having a great time, thinking of it! It is nearly time for my yearly shower, I have one whether I need it or not.

Great fun, Nathan, being able to flip through the images and watch this lovely blackbird having a cold bath - he even looks as if he is doing solely for your benefit. Oh and I just love your birdbath, no wonder he is happy to bathe in it ... Carol Grin
