Hi all, considering the large crop on this one I'm quite pleased, well I'll have to be because it will be quite a while before I even get the chance to see one again Wink
The BG has been changed to accommodate some text which will be added later (an ongoing project which I'm doing for a local farm where I get a lot of my shots from)

Many thanks for taking time out to view and comment on Looking for mum and a special thank you to Sue (SUE118) and Ann (EAS) for the UA's, so much appreciated,
Regards,
Geoff.

Apologies to those that voted and commented on this yesterday, I took the 1st one down to edit and uploaded a 2nd, however both were showing in my PF even after refreshing so I did another delete, seems like I messed up big time and lost both, really sorry about that.

Ignoring the bird for the moment I think the composition is absolutly spot on with the stick coming in at a good angle and the position of the bird in the picture, (ignoring all that thirds rubbish) looking in to the rest of the picture. Brilliantly done and then you have the bird there as well to top it all off Smile
