The unmistakable yellow Mohican of the Goldcrest (Regulus Regulus) aka “King of the Birds”. Aristotle (384–322 BC) and Pliny (23–79 AD) both wrote about the legend of a contest among the birds to see who should be their king, the title to be awarded to the one that could fly highest. Initially, it looked as though the eagle would win easily, but as he began to tire, a small bird that had hidden under the eagle's tail feathers emerged to fly even higher and claimed the title "king of the birds". #goldcrest #kingofthebirds #regulusregulus #bird #birds #bird_lovers #birdwatching #instabird #birdsofinstagram #birdfeeder #gardenbirds #nature #naturephotography #naturelovers #naturefacts #wildlife #wildlifephotography #nikon #nikonphotography #nikonphotographer #sigmalens #letnaturesing #rspbbiggardenbirdwatch #cumbria #igerscumbria #instadaily #instagrammer #aristotle #britishbirds #naturephotos @rspb_love_nature @bbcspringwatch
This was the most still I’ve ever seen a Nuthatch! I think she was calling for a mate. Just sitting in the Oak waiting for a bloke lol. #nuthatch #britishbirds #gardenwildlife #olympusuk #olympusem1mark2 #olympus300mmf4pro #wildlife #birdsintrees #nature #wildlifephotography
One painting finishes and another begins... Step 1: painted the background in blue.

Robin - saw this lovely little chap earlier today.
A very grey day today brightened up by an unexpected visitor to our cherry tree! A long tailed tit, one of my absolute favourite birds, but not one I've had before in my own garden. Not the best photo but I was just so happy to see him! ❤️ . . . #naturephotography #wildlifephotography #britishbirds #gardenbirds #birding #birdphoto #birdsofinstagram #longtailedtit #winter
Pleased to see this little beauty again. Ringed in the garden last September and good to know it has made it through the winter. #birdringing #longtailedtit #gardenbirds #cuteandfluffy #birds #birdsofinstagram #birdstagram #britishbirds #nature #naturegram #naturelovers #wildlife
Lovely day @bicton_park Love the bird hide there. Lots to see. This lovely robin among them.
Great day out to #rspb #minsmere Annoyingly cloudy after several days of sunshine so not great for photos. However, that didn’t stop us seeing lots of birds! Very excited to see a Treecreeper and some Water Pipits for the first time. Also saw a Bittern in flight and heard one booming; first day they’ve been heard at Minsmere this year #loveminsmere #treecreeper #birds #nuts_about_birds #ukwildlife #britishbirds

Ever unsure about the differences between a brambling and a chaffinch? Well, here they are together - a male brambling in the foreground and a male chaffinch in the background.... we're sure you'll agree that they're both very handsome birds! #brambling #bramblings #chaffinch #chaffinches #birds #birdsofinstagram #rspb #springwatch #winterwatch #ukbirds #britishbirds #staveleynaturereserve #yorkshire #yorkshirebirds #birdwatching #birdwatchingphotography #birdphotography #embracenature #embracenatureuk

I was watching a pair of Dippers collecting nesting material this morning, spring must be in the air. I was intrigued by the way they collected the moss and then went to the water to wet it before going to the nest site. #bird #birds #birdsofinstagram #birdwatching #birdphoto #birdphotography #bird_brilliance #bird_lovers #wildlife #wildlifephotography #nuts_about_birds #britishbirds #ukbirds #yourbestbirds #your_best_birds #kings_birds #pocket_birds #gloriousbritain #nature #natures_marvels #nature_perfection #naturelovers #naturephotography #britishcountryside #countryside #britishwildlife #uk_wildlife_images
Keeping Mabel & I company in the veg garden today. 🥦🥕🐛 #robin #vegetablegarden #growyourownfood #britishbirds #nature
Grey skies above the village tonight, but the starling murmurations continues. You can clearly see raptors predating in this video. Anyone know what these are? They look bigger than the usual sparrow hawks. Instagram has reduced the quality of my video 😳 #starlings #starling #murmuration #starlingmurmuration #parwichmurmuration #parwich #britishbirds #rspb #hawkattack #raptor #derbyshiredales #peakdistrict #derbyshirewildlifetrust
Finally got a snap of this fellow! He's been living in this house longer than we have I think. Such a pleasure to have him flaunting about outside our living room window for part of each year! Love watching his comings and goings. #birdwatching #birdbox #bluetit #britishbirds #cheeky

Putting lighter colours over the top of dark colours with pencil is tricky. There are some options that I know of, there may be many more. If you have a definite light / white area you can try to keep it clean throughout the drawing. This is probably the most effective, as long as you remember to keep erasing any smudges that work their way into that highlight. The spine of this feather is a good example of this. I’ve kept it fairly clean throughout the drawing. - - - But it’s not always possible to do this. What about when there are lighter parts that criss cross over darker areas. So the fluffy long feather ends that form a net over the feather are a light colour. Options I’ve explored are that you can fix the drawing with a coloured pencil fixative and then go over it. That does work but in this case I didn’t want to spray the drawing. Next option is to use a soft white pencil or white charcoal or white pastel. Unfortunately that wouldn’t work in this case. The option I went for is to use gouache and you could probably also use acrylic. Mix a little up in a dish with some water and lightly add them at the end. - - - This drawing of my fluffy buzzard feather is almost complete. It has been a calming peaceful very sacred drawing. - #colouredpencil #artproblems #pencildrawings #coloredpencil #art #artist #workingartist #artforsale #drawing #birds #birdsofinstagram #gardenbirds #britishbirds #artistsoninstagram #professionalartist #contemporaryart #contemporarydrawing #wildlife #wildlifeart #gallery #wallart #animal #amimalart #instaart #saatchiart #artfinder #feather #featherart
Was super excited to see this nuthatch make his debut on the patio, loved watching him running up and down the trellis, even if it did make for blurry photos! #nuthatch #nuthatchesofinstagram #welcome #birdsofinstagram #upsidedown #birdwatch #rspbbiggardenbirdwatch #gardenwatch #gardenbirds #ukbirds #britishbirds #ukgardenbirds #patio #londongardens #saturdaymorning #offtowork #croydon
