Nothing quite like the beauty of a hellebore close up.

Not a good photo and don't know what the bird is but it loved what the shore fishermen disturbed.

 

I think it's a good pic, KEF.....btw, I think it's probably an Egret.

Fairygirl - Mr Kipling? If only I had his money!  Some would say I'm a better cook than picture snapper......but that's another story.  

Mincemeat....I used to make my own when I had a family to feed, but hardly seems worth the effort now, just for myself.

Edit: I agree, shop bought stuff is sickly.

Well done, James get them established before the onset of any really cold weather & they'll romp away in the spring.

Dove, that's what I do and (as you say) works most of the time....this forum does have its little quirks - Merry Christmas to you & yours too.

Can't compete with that, Fairy.......but I do make exceedingly good mince pies.

Getting singleated was the best thing I ever did......so come on you swans, the grass is much greener on the other bank!

Thanks, KEF....I have to say that I was pleased with the shot inasmuch as it all happens so quickly you don't get much time to dither.....the criteria is (irrespective of other considerations) to get the eye in focus & everything else falls into place. This I was pleased to have achieved.

Crikey.....I'm going on a bit!
