8th day of lockdown. It can be very time consuming finding attractive props to photograph birds. This piece of Silver birch with a perfect bracket fungi took many hours of searching. It has to be small and light enough to carry to a feeding station. The background is a reedbed, which gives a nice warm colour. The fungi was so perfect that when it fell off due to clumsy handling I superglued it back on.
