They have an amazing grip with those claws Smile I always had one or more as a child, but where we live now they are only a small variety and they are very scarce. I love the colours on this beauty Lillian Smile

What an array of colours Elton is displaying for your shot, Lillian: the arrangement of the subject within the frame could not be better, the detail every bit as impressive as ever from you, and the black b/g again showing off the animal and it's 'perch' to perfection.
From that, you may assume I think this one's "nae bad".

Fantastic picture Lillian, love the dark background it really makes him stand out. I also have just bought the Canon 100mm F2.8 L IS macro lens, i as yet haven't taken a great deal with it, apart from the grandkids it really does also take great detailed portraits
