This little " fella " used to pay us a visit every evening on the patio when we stayed at the holiday cottage recently, a few sunflower seeds and he happily munched away in full view, just love this pose, the background is the fields at the back of the cottage. Many thanks for the comments and votes re the wild flower upload and thanks to all those for identification of the flower, much appreciated.

This has to be one of the best photos I have seen recently. You were so lucky, I only see them high in trees and then they skedaddle. Well captured with a lovely background to show off such a great pose. Arty
