Lovely vivid shot H, I see what you mean about the beaks, my first thought was Muppets, perhaps a
still from the new Movie. Smile

I don't think I have ever been that close to a Poinsettia before Herman and you took my thoughts of the image right out of my brain [I use the term loosely].

'cold wet and rainy here' if I had known you were outside my house I would have invited you in for a coffee, same weather here at the moment; Summer has chilled significantly at the moment, just in time for me to go on my Jollies and staying in the UK this year, so will have to pack my winter woollies I think.
