The Two of Us!

By Lillian  
We were left alone in the hides when John
went home, as he trusts us not to upset things and to
put out the seed for the birds in the evening...
This is what John called the Night Shift
a pheasant, he does not like them there...but we loved him
got some great shots..cannot wait to see Ade's ones as well
we had nearly 2000 photos each as was such a good day!!
Also a white squirrel...Ade saw first...we missed him!

Sorry about the long intro...but felt this image needed the story behind it

Thank you for all the comments and awards on the spring Goldfinch

Woke to thick snow here, will not be getting car out for awhile
was going out for lunch...still a maybe

Lillian

unfortunately He does not allow them there when he is on premises
and then there is the track getting to the woods
it is too dangerous in snow...John there is a track you have to stay on or
you are stuck there needing a tractor to get you outWinkBlush

A brilliant image Lillian.
Such a good reflection and the Pheasant gave us a great 10 minutes of entertainment.
Although i am sure John wouldn't agree SmileSmileSmile
It was great to see the White Squirrel too even if only for a short time.
It would blend in well with it's surroundings today i think.
