    Nice to see you back Mary. Nil carborundum.

    Well Korky I have never heard of this saying, but I absolutely "love it" ha ha....    

    Well Done on capturing the Cresties, I have yet to see one on the LG feeder, but do hark back to a photo I have posted before of having the great pleasure of having them feed from my hand in Switzerland.   

    Taken a while ago, so quality not very good I am afraid

    Wow! That's amazing Mary. So lucky. Photos are great! They are such flighty birds I'd never have imagined they'd feed from your hand. Must try that up at LG this year......(I've only ever seen them on the webcam)

    Korky despite visiting Loch Garten many many times since 2011 I have yet to see a Crested Tit there.  Not for the want of looking for them.

    That must have been a real Wow moment Mary, having the cresties feed from your hand, magic.

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

    What a thrill for you, Mary, and I love the photos.

    Couldn't resist, of course, tho matching up this one is a bit of a challenge but I know you are very tolerant ;-D

    (This should be only 400px wide but it's looking huge before posting... EDIT, and it was after, too, so here it is resized down.)

    Awww Thank You Scylla for taking the time to do that, its a lovely Frame very well matched , pity the photo wasn't so good, but its the content that I will always cherish.   It was one of the memorable highlights of my life....
