Back at Lotherton with the birds....
Its a strange place as the birds seem always to be preening and the deer always eating grass.
I am afraid I havent the patience like most people on here to wait for that special moment...
I do love the colours of these birds.


A very warm thankyou to Jukka (kuvailija) for his user award for my simple trail image from yesterday.
Funnily last night thought I wasn't going to make it to Monday and decided what a wonderful goodbye piccy to all my friends at EPZ
But heh ho still here.... Fighting fit.
Again thankyou Jukka....Smile

An excellent preening pose with superb colour and immaculate detail: the darker b/g further allows the subject to feature with no distractions.
