he is gorgeous!!! what a beautiful bird... we have been hearing a loud shriek during the day and thought it might be a hawk... we finally saw the bird and it is a tiny wood pecker of some kind, with a big voice.

Fantastic. That would be a real rarity here, but there are a few of them down in the Scottish Borders.

Nice shots Sonjia, I have a male he flies straight over my garden and ignores my feeders. Take care, Mike.

Wonderful images, in particular those of flowers, also in your other posts!
