Wren in the heather

This image was taken at my new woodland hide which was specifically chosen for the abundance of heather and natural light.  I was sitting waiting for the squirrels to arrive when this gorgeous little wren made an appearance and perched itself on the broken branch of a fallen tree.  I could not believe it as they normally just flit about the site in a flash diving quickly for cover.   I did not want to spook it and carefully positioned my camera slowly in it’s direction.  It stayed on the perch for about 10 seconds but did not sit still for a second, constantly bobbing and moving on the perch.   As the heather was out in full bloom it made for the perfect shot as it framed the image perfectly with a stunning splash of colour.
