I thought he'd bitten off more than he could chew.

I was sitting in a garden chair with a beer in one hand when I spotted a bird high up in the bushes.

Just waiting for him to spit the stone out.

Many thanks to everybody for the much appreciated comments.

Maybe I should ensure I ALWAYS have a beer in one hand - seems to steady my shutter button and sort out focus and exposure.

Might pass this tip on to Mike :-))
