Iím NOT singing !

By HobbitDave
I just do this crazy thing on sunny days where I spread out on the warm earth and get so hot that I get dehydrated.
Then I have to find the nearest pond or puddle and have a drink. The earth does get rid of some of my mites, but I get really thirsty. Itís the way I was made 🙂

Charming shot in the garden environment, Dave. I have watched them doing the spread-eagle moves you write about. I thought they were trying to look wounded and pathetic to attract a kind hearted mate. There are a couple of shots somewhere back in my Pf. I really like your inclusion of the yellow flower, which adds a lot to your pic. Smile

This is a most wonderful story telling image-- The inclusion fo the plants and his perch tells us much about this bird!
