Whose using the apple feeder.......................................... other than the birds

I was given this little apple feeder as a gift last Christmas... and it's become a firm favourite with the wildlife.

Cut the skin off the sides of an apple then just pierce it onto the point... the just birds peck away.
But the birds aren't the only visitors to my garden enjoying the apples.

...sunbathing while feeding... (a tenuous link to Shadow Shot Sunday)

...and Smilers becoming a bit of a connoisseur at tasting the offcuts...

...and if nobodies watching making off with his favourite... Pink Lady Apples.

What a great little gadget.
I am sure that it would be easy to rig up your own apple feeder (that's what I always do...call me cheap)
Great shots.
Cheers,
Leah
