This is one of the shots I thought I had lost forever. Taken at Paradise Park in the company of Lillian Ju Barney and Carole.
My computer crashed and served me up a blue screen, thereafter it refused to restart and would not recover from my recent backups. ( Reported as corrupted )
Eventually I managed to sort it using a three month old System Image but lost three months worth of work. It was only later I thought to look through the corrupted
backup manually and discovered that I could reinstate some of the lost files. SmileSmileSmileSmile Whilst not getting back everything at least I have some of my images back.GrinGrin

Thanks to all who commented and clicked on Bird in hand and a belated Happy new Year to all.

Will try to catch up over the next few days.

what a cute face-on shot.
Nick, I have downloaded and bought a recovery software which I have used for the company once after a crash but most of all several times for dodgy memory cards. It is really good for photos Smile the name is Remo recover and you can try a demo first.If the demo version finds you photos you have won. I have tried several programs and some are completely useless and even install harmful software.
Remo was the only one that worked well with raw files and was affordable.

you seem to be putting up a lot of otters lately just wondering if you are developing some kind of apathy with the webbed feet.Smile.Lovely shot though.
