DescriptionA dull walk with only 28 frames taken in 3 hours.  Till I rounded the corner of the graveyard and saw this lovely young lady having tea.  About 900 frames later I had a lot to sort through.  Which is difficult when you have so many nearly identical good frames, forcing myself to delete some.  She polished this off, then flew up onto the church, then hopped around on the dead tree for a while, vanishing into a crack in the trunk at one point, before flying out over the fields again.  Fantastic to watch and she seemed aware of, but not concerned by me shooting her.  Guess is that this was a shrew, either way it seemed a big meal, and took a while to tear apart.
