Elvis lives!

By ShedMan  
Since we started putting out fruit on a raised platform, we manage to attract a Crested Barbet to our garden. As its Afrikaans name, 'kuifkop houtkapper', means 'quiff headed woodpecker' we decided to name him Elvis. Here he is showing off his quiff whilst eating a nice juicy raisin!

This little one steals my heart. What a beauty. And you captured a very endearing moment, its just the way he looks standing in that bowl, with funny ruffled head feathers, and tail over the edge... beautiful shot beautiful colors of ripe fruit...
Another great one from the Master.
