Thought I'd throw you all a "curveball" today by uploading a shot of a Reed Bunting and seeing if any of you are awake and notice the change from Moths......Tongue

Well I didn't want you all thinking I'd forsaken my bird photography now did I......So yes I still keep my hand in, although I must admit I don't seem to get as much time as I'd like doing it. Took this last year sometime. but only just processed the RAW files, I really must get on top of my work.....1000's of images and no time to process them Sad Won't be doing very much commenting today as I've got the grandchildren here, but I promise to catch up later on this evening......

Regards to all......Ade

Beautifully composed and captured Ade! I can't / won't do birds (no gear, no skill, no patience), so always admire a first class image such as this!

Superb capture Ade - maybe you could have called it Mothballed as you'd not brought it out for a while & we would have still got the moth fix!! Grin Some lovely feather detail. Lou
