      what’s even more amazing was when he stood up to go and get some food he momentarily flapped his wings out and the tips are all black! such a contrast. so beautiful.

      there were three more just round the corner. all standing on one leg with their heads back to front. think he was just getting some “me” time.

    For a brief moment I thought this was an ornament in your garden. But not having seen your garden and without knowing your taste in ornaments I can only believe it to be real. In which case – WOW!
