There are a few more garden bird images from the last few weeks that I thought I would share with you all. These are just a few of my favourite posers.
I often hear Yellowhammer in the countryside surrounding home, but I do not often see them around the garden. On this day I was in luck as this female came to visit the feeders with her partner. As the male strutted his stuff on the ground, she seemd to almost be keeping an eye for danger. In the end the pair left the feeders without the female even having one seed.
This little Robin is a regular visitor around my feeding station. It never stays for long but always poses just long enough for me to get a few shots. On this occasion he seemed particularly interested in my hide. As many of you will know Robins can be extremely territorial (males often fight to the death) and I wonder whether he could see his own reflection in the front glass of my lens.
As with many gardens around the country the Blue Tits are regular visitors to my feeders, they normally go for the peanuts or sunflower seeds. These beuatiful little birds never normally stick around the feeders for long, they prefer their "grab and dash" technique. On this occasion this little bird decided to stay put in a stance that seemed to suggest he thought he was the "King of the Castle".
