last year's winner - Foxglove by Jennifer Charter Tip: I had a Green Woodpecker hopping around my lawn today. I had the zoom wound up so much that the photos came out off centre and blurred. What I should have done, I now realise is to wind down the zoom and then crop and enhance the photo. Silly me.
