Well taken shot John, yesterday there was talk about seeing shapes in the sky. Today I saw a shape which looked like a rodent (centre left). Its probably a leaf.

A well camouflaged little bird... the colour of the flower caught my eye first. We have some in our garden, I understand it is a weed, a very pretty one but I don't know the name of it. Can anyone tell me ?
Nice photo John.

Nice coloured bird and could be mistaken for a canary.

It looks like Purple Loosestrive Helen.

As Dave says well done John, I just saved it and enlarged it to have a closer look.

Expensive piece of kit the Sony A55. Been replaced by the Sony A57. The numbers sound like the names of roads!
