A selection from the woods

By Ray42
Many thanks for the clicks and comments on the posting of another moth eaten dragonfly - always appreciated. Haven't had a good year - hardly been out due to "bits falling off". The day before my weekend away another bit dropped off!!!! The wife went to see our granddaughter yesterday so I sneaked down the woods for a couple of hours to take some snaps of my feathered friends. I was quite amazed to see such a selection of birds - so here is a few of them.
I shall not be posting up for a while until I am sorted out (if ever) - I may pop in from time to time to see some of your great work. Many thanks for all the support you have given over the years - most appreciated.
Best wishes to you all

A beautiful set the Jay being my particular favourite, so wonderfully captured. We have many visit our lawns, but as yet I have failed to capture one worthy of an upload.

What a lovely, varied set. V1 and 4 for me simply because I am particularly fond of this beauty. We have some visiting the local graveyard where we walk the dogs but our two German Shepherds ensure that they don't hang around for long.

A smashing, colourful, characteristic set, Ray. You led from the front with V1, it's so intensely lively.
Just don't let that sense of humour drop off with the other bits.
Best wishes

The jay is lovely, Ray, as are the others.
Hope you enjoyed your trip to Hayling Island (where I used to live).
I am now concerned about your bits dropping off, you have me totally intrigued.
Enjoy a little break and look after yourself.

What's great series.. It is the squirrel and the second jay I love best!
Hope you get better soon, my OH had a bad year, too. From one doctor visit after the other he ended up on a trip to Malaysia and there it was much better. so I really hope it will soon be mended
