First off, a very big thank you to Pamela (pamelajean) for her bright and colourful User Award on Saturday's "Hooked on Shadows" Smile

-----

And I’m glad Sunday’s image raised some chuckles Grin

Now then…remember Saturday’s golden oriole? Well, I managed to get two shots of it…and this was the first one I took. Unfortunately headless but I thought I’d upload it anyway ‘cos you get a good view of the nice plumage on its wing. The yellow looks pretty dark in this shot, though. How odd.

Hope you like the plumage anyway Smile

Andrew

Maybe this one was camera shy Andrew or maybe you haven't read the section in the photography rule book that gives instructions on how to make wild things behave themselves? Whatever, the plumage detail is terrific as is the detail on those lovely feet.

You are a spoilsport though - you haven't enabled modifications and this image has lots of comic potential.

Lynne, I tried to make him read the rules but he was having none of it. Gave me the evil eye. And you've seen his evil eye - all red 'n' stuff!

Can I enable Mods after uploading? Hang on...lemme try...

Love Lynne's mod. Made me laugh my head off. I was thinking of doing a mod and putting a crows head on it. But Lynne's is easier and much funnier.
