Weekly Photo Challenge: On Top 4

Today I am feeling very pleased and excited with the photos I have taken on my walk this afternoon. You could say I feel ‘on top’ of the world, or even ‘on top’ form! And that’s my tentative link with Weekly Photo Challenge!

This little female chaffinch was just sitting in the hedgerow with what I thought was a catkin in her beak! My son had just rung me, so I was talking on the phone when I noticed her….

I kept talking to my son and turned on my camera with my other hand!

She, Cheryl Chaffinch, seemed very happy so stay where she was, which is more than I can say for what I now know to be the caterpillar squashed in her beak!

As you can see, I couldn’t stop taking photos of her whilst my son waited patiently on the phone!

The Chaffinch and the Chard!

Oh but he was singing so beautifully and so loudly I was drawn away from the digging at the allotment to search for him….

"The greatest thing to do on an evening like this is to SING SING SING!" chirped Charlie Chaffinch.

But what about the chard you may ask….well here it is….

That’s a Funny Name for a Chaffinch!

Today I’ve had one of those busy doing a lot sort of days but when you get to the end of it you wonder what you have done!

It snowed for most of the day and so it was hard to keep my lens dry and achieve good photos!

Anyway I thought I introduce Chertsey Chaffinch who I first met last week…

"Why is she calling me Chertsey...what a ridiculous name!" snapped Dave Chaffinch!

“Why is she calling me Chertsey…what a ridiculous name!” snapped Dave Chaffinch!

Then a little further along I saw some sheep on the other side of a stream….the one with the black face stared at me and then stamped her foot!! She seemed quite cross! Then she just appeared to decide to ignore my existence!

"I'd give her what for if she dared to come into this field!" Ewegenie siad bravely, all the while knowing that the woman with the camera would not cross the water anyway!

I rather liked this fungi growing on a tree….

Fergie Fungus tried hard to smile...he just needed a few more weeks!

Up and under!

"Oooh! Cheeky!" said Fergie when he realised where that woman had put her camera!

Anyone for a knobbly knees competition?
