A Collection!

By Lillian  
This Dunnock was singing away beautifully!
V2 Will be my worst enemy...he knew I was there!!
V3Coal Tit
V4 a lovely young sparrow

So many different birds from my bedroom 'hide' but I think I have bored you all enough
and really must get on with some of the photos taken in France....still not processed!

V2 is there only because I really do not like him and he knows it!
yes I do agree he is cute, and waited for his photo take...but the water pistol was then used

Have a great day, time for me to top up the feeders!

A nice image.
I like the control of image detail and colours.
I think a thighter crop would work some off the top that will push the birds head on to the thirds.
Very well taken.

Visions of you firing your water pistol through the window have brightened my morning!

Four lovely bedroom hide shots but the cutie in V3 is an outright winner for me.

Another fine 'boudoir' set, Lillian Grin. Squirrels, foxes, cats, pigeons .... they're all fair game for my water pistol, 'game' being the operative word I think as they always come back for more to see if I can actually hit the target for a change!!!

Lovely set Lillian, i think i need a garden like yours. In my neighborhood we seem to have too many cats, which i blame for the lack of birds in my garden

A beautiful set of images, the pigeons seem to dominate the feeders as soon as I top them up for the young birds, perhaps I will have to invest in a water pistolWink

WHAT a beautiful set with each one being super crisp! Well done on these, Lillian.

If I had to choose a favourite it'll be hard...but I would have to go with V3 for the sheer puffiness of that adorable puffball GrinGrin

That cheeky chappy in v2 got shot twice, first by your camera and then by your water pistol!Wink I can imagine you doing your best Clint Eastwood impression when you turned your water gun on him "Go on punk make my drey!"GrinGrinGrinGrinGrin I love the alert stance from the dunnock in v1, i think i've got a pair nesting in one of the bushes in my back garden

A fine collection taken in the wild. The most difficult but satisfying photographing methods. They are all so good Lillian. The only reason why I don't like the greys is because of their effect on the reds. They were introduced into this country so long ago and have had many many years to establish themselves and establish they have!!. paul

Vs 3 and 4 are my favourites, Lillian.
My father used to say, "I put food out for the birds and the damned pigeons come and eat it all". Hmmmmmm.
There are always some garden visitors that we'd rather didn't visit.
