Taken last Saturday from the hide out in my back yard.

I sat there for ages with my camera set in portrait position just waiting for a bird to land on this part of the perch, I'd set the focus point to be about where I thought the bird's head would be because I knew that when they landed I'd only have a split second to get the shot before they flew off again.

There was still a lot of snow on the mountain in the background on Saturday but by Sunday it had melted.
