Ruffled feathers on a bad 'hair' day Grin, and that is some serious 'weather' wear, Lillian. I've not seen a 'line up' like that since I left work TongueGrin

A most beautiful Bird of Prey with glorious colour and markings. Whilst the Lesser Spotted Camera Pointers have been wonderfully assembled and captured in their native habitat.
