Oh, thank you, musket

(the first picture is actually a bit inspired by your latest floral-architectural pictures)

Thank you, Daniel!

There is not so much to be said (in this context) about the first picture. One special thing is the colours of the wall and the flowers.

I really can┬┤t tell if they always have had japanese trees outside the building and therefore painted the wall in that special colour or if they have chosen the tree to match the colour of the wall

Of course it is possible to find out. I can ask someone when I am in the vincinity

Torgny

BTW I visited your homepage. Really great pictures. How did you make the little woodpecker sit in the hand? Here it never happens

It was in a series of pict as I was actually feeding chickadee , a bird more friendly than a downy woodpecker. Somehow I saw that bird was circling and about to come down . I was illequipped with two cameras ready - a 300mm and oops a fisheye. I had no alternative but to use a fisheye for shooting bird. My first and probably my last one for handfeeding and taking pict of a wild bird. It came and gone in 5 seconds as recorded digitally

Well, Daniel, for an "old ornithologist" like me paradise is a place where birds and humans are friends; also a place where it would be easier to take pictures (smile)

I take it that it is a Dendrocopos major, second year perhaps. There are three different species in this country that look almost the same and it can be hard to differentiate between them.

You were lucky to have that fish-eye with you

Curiosum: In my language this bird family is called "Hack-spett". Hacking is as you know the word for some "nerdy" computing activities. (smile) That┬┤s why this bird is a symbol, (logotype) for the most renowned (?) technical university┬┤s computing division
