    Hi Pat, now that's a great shot. I love the placement of the bird, allowing it room to look in to the frame, and the background is gorgeous. Very well done.

    Amazing how 3.5 hours of sitting still brings luck isn't it! I can't do it, I just don't have the patience and hence the luck.
    Beaut of an image, Pat.
