Stunning bird Sylvia. Top class perch and plumage detail of the very best. Stands out really well against that BG.

Hiya Sylvia, sorry I'm not emailed you with any results on the mothing front etc, had a bit of a emergency with by best mate being taken ill.....So my photography and everything else is on the back burner at the moment until he's on his feet, hopefully that won't be to long though.
This is a lovely image mate, catch up with you soon.......Ade

You've been hiding this one away Sylvia, what a great looking bird, lovely light and great detail, the surrounding perch has lots of interest and a lovely clean backdrop.
