Those reflections just make these images.
I hope they satisfy Mikbee's visionTongue
They are very beautiful birds and indeed 'elegant'.

Did he really expect me to upload some pics of Kate Upton and Karlie Kloss clad in their bikinis, that would have really been heart attack material for the poor old boy!TongueTongueTongue
