Tuesday (2)

The chap above is now busy raising his SECOND brood  this year. He is being assisted (in gathering food for the brood) by a young female from the first brood -  I think I got  a  shot of the  two of them them this morning; whilst the hen  bird is presumably sitting on  the eggs.

Aquilegia, or, if you're of  Norfolk origin, Granny's  Bonnets.

Please see Blog Entry Tuesday 3 for the photograph mentioned of father blackbird and his daughter from the first brood scavenging on behalf of the second brood.

Wonderful display of blooms, Mike. I think I prefer their other name, Columbine (who with her partner, Harlequin brings all the colour and vitality of the Commedia dell'arte to mind).
