Spring and Rivalry

The big old mirror removed from my bathroom and placed against an outside wall didn’t seem to be causing any hassle.

Collared sunbird

Luckily he was fine after a bit of rest and recuperation and whizzed off while I turned the mirror around so he could no longer spot a handsome rival mimicking his every move.
