The Gate Keeper !

By WindowonWildlife    
The Gate Keeper ! Smile

A little bit of fun to liven up a miserable day !!

Many thanks to PhilSingleton for his UA and Pete for the HC on the previous image & all else for your votes, comments and clicks which are always greatly appreciated.

My commitment to EPZ of late has been a little lacking, mainly due to work and partly due to other outside influences...In short I've lost my mojo and struggling to regain the buzz Sad As fellow togger's i'm sure you have all experienced similar in the past !! If not, you will....It comes to us all at some point, so i'm reliably informed..........!!

I shall bore you no longer, just wish you all well and try to spend a little more time catching up Smile

All the best
Dean

The mojo will return...............it may take time but a little spark will blast you back into life.........it could be this long awful winter we have had/having...............we all need warmth and sunshine to help bring us out of the doldrums..............GrinGrinGrinGrin

A terrific image Dean, these keys make a most unusual perch and it is definitely a better prop than a groundsheet from Next!Wink

The key to a great shot is apparently three keys....

I think we have all been there Dean... the Mojo is a fickle beast and this weather does not help it... keep your chin up it will pass, well thats what I tell myselfWink

lovely perch and I thought of some brown flutterby Smile
your usual excellent detail and composition.
Know what you feel like, when you rush through a rainy early morning to work, come back it is still raining the weekend is as grey.. very frustrating.

That is how I came up with the idea of action shots.. thought that would be nice for a change Smile

Pleasing composition. That key looks worryingly insecure!Grin

Cracking Gt Tit capture and brilliantly original perch, Dean. Know exactly how you feel - been there several times but somehow one manages to claw oneself back again Wink. I am sure the negative feelings will pass.
