They are in fine fettle at the moment Sylvia - sumptuous colours and detail throughout with great focus on the eye...

What a great shot, so sharp. I've tried putting a couple of these cocnut feeders out but both have disappeared within a couple of days..I think my shot would be of clear air, no bird and a fuzzy back ground. Smile
