Olympic Hopeful


On a recent foggy morning, high on a branch overlooking the lake,

little gymnasts were practicing their moves.

































This nuthatch's performance was practically flawless.

When we raised our cards in the judges' box, they both read 9.9!





Linking with Wild Bird Wednesday

Splendid little birds - used to have them in my garden in the UK, but we don’t have them in Australia.
