By the 10th July the chick had increaced in size and had various coloured feathers. The Hens remained at the nests, they will not leave until the chick fledges, depending on the male to feed her and their chick. A time of great activity as groups of males flew down the gorge and hens stretched their long necks looking for their partner.

V1. the male has regurgitated food and the female picks through it (yummy!), eats the larger pieces and feeds the small bits to her chick.

V2. Shooting from a responcible distance. The male has a good scratch while mum feeds the nipper... almost human behaviour, LOL!

V3. The chick gets a lesson in Grooming.

The green plant with pretty pink flowers in this series is wild capers (vicious thorns!)

I'll add some more this evening. Off to set hide up at dam before the sun rises (Cormorants, Teal, and Bonelli's Eagle).

Their heads, with all that fluff, even on the adults, never looks sharp but you've done a great job. Smile

Thanks Richard, I've always wondered is it's worth buying genuine fractals to interpolate? You've made me think about checking it out, thanks.
Off to shoot the carnival in Rethymnon now, catch you later.

Thanks very much everyoneSmile
