Firstly, many thanks to you all for your support on the Eagle shots, all very much appreciated as awlays.

A special thanks to PhillipMinnis for the GEA on yesterdays shot, and to Ianrobinson for his UA on my recent image, "Forever chasing rainbows".

Another shot from Mull, this evening, a Curlew.
Just love listening to these whilst just relaxing in the beautiful peace and quiet of Mull.

Thanks for looking.

Phil

Delightful colour and detail Phil - from a comp point of view I would have liked the space underneath the bird to suggest that the feet wasn't cut off - I know my head might roll for that but only a suggestion not critism - Ina

Beautifully taken, Phil, I like the light area on the grass just in front of the curlew, the dof and detail. That's a lovely stance, showing the back feathers off nicely. At least you didn't get lost in your reverie listening to these birds, and took some pictures tooWink.
