  • Conservatory Capture

    This came into my conservatory on Sunday morning, it flew around a while terrifying the living daylights out of me, so I did not get a good shot of flying, it settled on the ceiling facing away from me, and I managed to get a few shots.






    I have got a few images in various proximity, some more detailed than others, in fact probably got too many to process, I just wish I had got some in it's natural habitat.

                  Well, we do often have "Jammie Dodgers" in the house but not for long, otherwise it may have been attracted to the noise of my high pitched singing voice

                      Excellent shots, difficult to track them down in the wild and to have one come to you is amazing. Were you trained in Hameln?

                        Haha......... very close in fact, I am originally from Hamel..ton (hamilton).

                        At 46 my magic pipes have faded, although I did find two mice in my outside bin the other day, munching their way through some old crackers.

                        Thank you David, I am beginning to appreciate the visit I had more and more.
