Is this a meeting of minds or just an accidental coming together.............I think the latter.....GrinGrinGrinGrin

A Goldfinch and a Great Tit wanting the same space.

Thank you to all who voted and commented on the Jay..........much appreciated.........I got the Hide out today for the first time in years and I sat there for hours..........the Jay did not turn up today, well I lie..........this morning the Jay was in the front garden very early so I set up for the Jay in the back garden.........it didn't show but I still managed to get some images of the other garden birds.

This image was taken on Sunday 11th Nov 2012 when we had all day sunshine...........GrinGrinGrinGrin

Not bad when you can get shots of this quality on the off chance,no doubt the jay will return .

You do manage the more unexpected shots, Julia, and another excellent example with a super title to go along with it.

Another absolute cracker, Julia, such perfect timing and your usual excellent detailing. You must have the patience of a saint - or else you've got the birds very well trained!! GrinGrinGrin

Lovely shot. A coming together of the birdies (not necessarily planned). It is really good to see the interactions of the species and their pecking order.

Pity about the Jay but I am sure it will return, makes your capture all the more valued by you, another excellent shot full of detail with a super title, as always with your work it's outstanding.
