Hanging on
« on: March 23, 2013, 07:17:36 PM »
At the same time that we fed the Swans, etc. we visited the feeders - and this shows the conditions of poor light (so high-ish ISO), snowing and very windy

You're a braver man than me out in these conditions, far too cold.  ;)  Great shot though.  8)

A very nice shot indeed. :)

Superb shot  :tup: The snow on the tip of the beak is like a magical touch  :)

Looks more like the suet fat from the baited log to me than snow. ;)

Think you're right! There was a suet ball rammed down into the top of the post
