A photo shoot with a Goldcrest in the garden yesterday morning. It fed for such a long time in this session, but they move SO quickly! It's nice to get shots from lots of different angles.
I hope I get the same lengthy opportunity with the Firecrest soon.

  8. Lovely photos Angie, so nice to be able to study it closely, it has quite a grumpy expression, I think :)

    I also loved your portrayal of the Smew and the Lambs frolicking on the post before that. I particularly liked the first one with the Lamb leaping in the air.

  10. Thank you John, Keith, Bill, Trevor, Frank, Adrian, Chris, SSB and Phil. No I have not been doping the food Adrian; I just have a mellowing effect on them! The Firecrest is in my sights Chris :-) Yes, it can be a grumpy expression from the right (or wrong!) angle SSB. Thank you all for your kind comments.
