Good Morning yo you all, firstly thank you for all your great comments, messages and votes following yesterdays upload of the Spinach Eating Sparrows.

Nothing much to say about today's upload really, I like what I saw so I photographed it...

I hope that you all have a great day ahead.

Regards as always Nathan Grin

I've nothing much to say about this either, but I like it, so I voted for it! I could go on for hours about minimal art etc, but let's just accept and enjoy an image for what it is. Three words will do, "less is more". Well done Nathan. Si.

Elegant in it's simplicity, Nathan: often 'less is more' and this is such an excellent example of such.
Well spotted and captured.
