Jubilee Weekend 2012 (3 & 4 June) #2

I managed to picture an even more elusive visitor. Not an uncommon bird by any stretch, but certainly one that doesn't hang around for long..

Jubilee Weekend 2012 (3 & 4 June)

We had a new frequent guest to the garden this weekend - and it just kept coming back - even in the rain.

And as usual for a UK bank holiday weekend... it rained.

Long exposures with large f-stop.
