Sometimes I wish I had a greater variety of birds around here.

Of course, I still enjoy these little guys.

Well, how could you not? It's a charming little bird - and a charming shot too.

What with there being no light and being super busy, this is the first time I've touched my camera in over a fortnight!

Nice, wintry shot. The frost gives it extra character.

You're making the most of it Sid as this is a cracking shot, the frost on the branch just adds to it.
