The mister and his missus on a dam near our house. VERY noisy neighbours, but lovely Smile V2- grooming
Thank you so very much to Valery, Andy and Myra for gracing my purple flower with their treasured UA 's as well as to everybody who took the time to vote and comment, I am encouraged to keep on experimenting Smile
Our son and his team did very well again yesterday beating the opposition by 86 runs. The week before they beat the other team with 10 wickets !! He bats at number one and is a pleasure to watch Smile
Have a super day !!

They are certainly different from Canada Geese, which are probably the only species I might recognise. Such vibrant colours which you have captured superbly Herman.

Does this mean that England's cricket team will have something to worry about in the future?
