Great picture

Wow well done. Great picture. They are just so difficult to photograph, hardly ever sitting still for long. Did it take you ages, or did you get lucky?

I have one that comes to the nut feeders in the garden and have been trying for weeks to get a photo of it to post on ispot.They are so easily spooked aren't they!I'd be interested to know how long it took you to get this great shot.

What a great capture. How lucky......

You have to tell us if it was luck or did you 'lay in wait' for hours
