Sorry dear members, I have not been around much, I got a bad flu and feel seriously bunged up, on top of that I have to got to work tomorrow and face the taxman!!
But after that it is off to Malaysia for 3 weeks, our first big holiday since 10 years.
If I can, I'll upload some more exotic birds and critters soon. Not to mention flowers and plants and architecture.. we'll see.
