For some reason I've never been able to fathom, it's always the young ones, and always on this little corner of the shed roof that they choose to sunbathe.

Not complaining though, - don't they look cute. One of the few nice days we had in June too.

TTTW

Just about to have breakfast and set off on the final leg of my homeward journey, hopefully less traffic than was around yesterday!

It is a lovely shot Delia, looks so contented there in the sun. Hope you have a good drive,

You should have dropped in on your way back, then you could have taken pics of my garden birds!!!!
