Close enough.... madam!

By Lillian  
Ok here was me thinking a different pose soon
Then what do you know, down he came
the Cuckoo, was getting closer and then so close
could not focus on him

What a day yesterday sunshine and rain, and freezing cold!
Then we had to wait 6 hours for him to arrive
some others there were 10 hours waiting, BUT you know he will turn up

again Annette and I managed loads of photos with the other small birds as well

Again very well captured. The what one would think of as a dull bird has really a beautiful plumage and so well brought out by you.
