Finally

    Newer Older

    I've known where he lives for the past 2 months. Every time I went past the tree I would takea look but I didn't see him.

    Yesterday Anne spotted him and called me so I could look on the way home.

    There he was sitting up as pretty as a picture.

    Finally.

      I was just expecting(hoping for) a head Jim. When he was fully visible I was really pleased.

      fantastic! - what great camouflage he has ... his feathers look so much like the bark. so great to come across something like this, with camera in hand!
