Though there’s no blue sky
You can always find the sun
If you care to look

Contortionist

Posted in response to the Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge. This week’s theme ‘Twisted’

This determined little chap had to really contort to get at the bird’s peanuts!  I admire his fortitude, but he is a bloomin’ little nuisance.. keeps busting the feeder. D’oh!  He seems quite pleased with himself though 🙂

Lucky Little Lady!

I’m not in the habit of entering competitions, from past experience it’s a recipe for disappointment for me.  However, this weekend I was encouraged to enter a photograph in the ‘nature and wildlife’ category at the local village flower and produce show (mostly because I wasn’t up to entering a painting and the rest of my art group were tsk…).  Anyhoo… hey… whatdayaknow… I won! Not exactly international success or fame and fortune I know, but nonetheless, I was quite chuffed, and got a certificate and everything!! So here she is, the lucky little lady:
