Another excellent series. Your commentaries almost make these series sound like a bed time story. BTW thanks for the close up of the Paper Mulberry, it really is a pretty flower.

Lovely sequence anyway but the facial expressions and interaction between the birds takes this to another level. I can imagine your excitement as you pushed the shutter while this was unfolding in front of you.
