What is this white stuff on my seeds?

- no 2:
that took some digging!

Now you know why the dunnock had to wait! thanks for all the kind votes and comments
Sorry dear members, I have not been around much, I got a bad flu and feel seriously bunged up, on top of that I have to got to work tomorrow and face the taxman!!
But after that it is off to Malaysia for 3 weeks, our first big holiday since 10 years.
If I can, I'll upload some more exotic birds and critters soon. Not to mention flowers and plants and architecture.. we'll see.

Two fine bird shots, Annette: sorry to hear you've been under the weather but 3 weeks in Malaysia should set you up nicely as well as affording excellent photo opportunities.

manipulation---- I darkened the background, then retrieved it and manipulated the shadows and lights, and mostly I have forgotten just what I did--- have a great trip

HA ha-- a person who does what you do might like some Fincks overalls! (I sure would for gardening)

Two superb captures, Annette. Do hope you are feeling better now, and that you get a well earned rest in Malaysia after 'doing the deed' with the dreaded taxman Grin Carol
