The colours here are so vibrant, Trev, and the subject stands out so well against the colour coordinated b/g tone.

I had one of these beggars give me the right run around yesterday (Sunday) and I still didn't get a chuffing shot of it in the end Sad So a big vote from me just for getting this one......
