It's only when I looked that up that I expanded the pic to find a beautiful green woodpecker munching on the Golden Hornets. We don't have them round here  :(


Excellent photo as always zwartbles  :thumbsup: :xmaswindow:   The best TAS can do for baubles!

Not a crab apple, Fleecewife. Must be a very old variety. Our house was built in 1650 and I would assume this was grown to be early winter food. Doesn't ripen until late October and a few normally hang around till Christmas. This year, presumably because we have only had one or two frosts, this is what we still have. We leave them for the birds!
