Amazing encounter with this little chap today. Luckily for me he waited until everyone else had gone before jumping up onto a reed about 15 feet away from me and giving me both barrels. I was fair intimidated I was!
Actually, I don't think he was angry, more just celebrating the glorious Sunday morning.
I was thinking if the wind drops I might get a glimpse of one of these. This chap duly obliged. Beautifully back-lit by the sinking sun.

Are these not the cutest little birds around? Well i do think so, it's one of my favorite birds.
In the period when i took this picture i had a lot of things going on in my life so i never got around to sort and develop the photo's. It's so much fun too see photo's like this one after all this time. I might post some more.
Many thanks to all those who comment on my photo's and/or add them as favourites. It is very much appreciated.
no crop, converted to b&w, sharpened and added a vignette - simple :) this is the same iris that I posted to HBW yesterday now fully in bloom.
I am not a huge fan of taking pictures of flowers, but sometimes they are so remarkable that you must take note. This bearded iris in our back yard is one of a dozen that are blooming as I write,. But they are so fragile that the rain coming tomorrow may destroy them before they have had a chance to entice whatever creature it is designed to attract. The Peonies across the garden that was beat to a pulp by yesterdays thunderstorm, we can only hope that the rains coming will be gentle.
