We have been lucky enough to see a number of shots of this bird lately Sylvia but surely none are better than this.Grin The plumage detail is quite outstanding and I do love the over the shoulder pose.

A corker of an image Sylvia, this little bird is posing beautifully for you, and the detail and clarity in the plumage is immaculate
