A delightful wee bird so well captured in very fine detail and colours: the paler but colour coordinated b/g shows the bird odd so well.

Delicately beautiful looking little bird, the details of which you have captured so perfectly. Thought for a moment there he'd turned up thanks to that sandstorm in yesterday's image! Tongue
