Back to the birds today and this gorgeous male GSW, I thought he had a haughty look.

Thank you so much for your response the Snowdrop image, blown away; special thank to Pete for Highly Commended, Stephen for his Guest Editor Award and Ronnie (AG) and John for their User Awards.

All attention gratefully received

David
