Lovely. Thank-you. The Japanese garden is fabulous. The swallows have the edge for me though. Keep em coming lol. They do cheer me,seriously.
OK, I will avoid anything controversial and send you a Red Admiral I pictured today near my home. Luckily, this one does not control the fleet of Polaris submarines based in Faslane that Scotland wants to get rid of: it is just a butterfly: there are no political messages, implicit or explicit.

Red Admiral
Just a Red Admiral. No, not a Soviet controlled drone, as the Daily Mail might make you think.

Forgot what he said this one was ,might be a Saker Falcon.
Stunning pictures, anyway. Here's a more rotten one, but it was in the wild, and it was taken just four hours ago a few minutes drive from my front door: a rather distant shot of an osprey in nearby Loch Carron, taken today on an afternoon walk with the dog. The osprey had just dived (in this case, unsuccessfully) for a fish, which is often the best time to get that long-range picture: these magnificent birds also undertake a long journey to Africa for the winter months:
Osprey, Loch Carron Reservoir, near Stirling, Scotland.

Birds NOT in the WON'T find an ostrich in the garden. That's what I meant.....outside Australia and Africa that is.
