What a palaver!

By Holmewood
Thank you so much for the votes and comments on my last upload. Special thanks to Jeff (kojack), Carol (canoncarol), Dave (DaveRyder), Kenny (ScottishHaggis), Steven (sjcphotography), Ju (JuBarney) and Steve (sparrowhawk) for your smashing User Awards.

We went up to the hide today and to explain my title - the GSW has not visited my hide except fleetingly and then today he landed on the fence post (V1) then he flew to the perch (V2) and I didn't have time to shorten the distance to get him all in then the tripod fell out of the clip that keeps it steady on the side of the hide so I was amazed that I got this shot. Shame I didn't have more space around him but I was so pleased to catch him. Hope you like them.

Have a great afternoon and evening.

Cathy and Stan
