Thanks Richard and many thanks for the User Award Smile. I know your particularly fond of these birds, I remember the excellent sequence of images you posted a while back.

A breathtakingly detailed capture Justin. Fab POV and terrific plumage patterning and tones. Love the back lighting through the wing and tail feathers and the sharp eye and beak detail. Shortlisted.
