Poor Great Tit (Forest of Dean)

  2. Oh--that scared me...he shows a lot of patience with those things hanging off his eyes. But, but, I bet he listens to Albert King, too!

    A pure joy, Bob, photos and music!

  3. Oh poor thing! Are you sure it was Tics? There is a type of avian pox which affects Tits with warty type growths on the head especially near the eyes and there has also been a mystery disease reported which is similar.

    The photos of the female Mallard on the last post were really superb Bob!!

  15. This too is Nature. I like to photo the fallen leaves, and 'back" sides of flowers, as well as struggling 'homeless' people. . . .

    Photography has real power, especially as you practice it, Bob.
