He looks rather effeminate to me, Sylvia Wink. Two super captures of this rather well plumaged bird. Carol

Not only is this a colourful, sharp image for me it emphasises the value of good photography, it allows me to see things I may not normally see, clear, close and in detail, and I can look at it for as long as I want to, it is not going to wander, fly or swim off.
