I'm still on the mend but feeling a little better. Thanks for all your kind wishes.
Again another quick upload. A magnificent Griffon Vulture, I know to many, not an attractive bird but full of charactor and a true master of the skies. He won't be, to many, a vote winner but I like him and it's not about votes anyway. He has a true superior look and I hope I have captured that with this shot.
Many thanks for all the C&C's and the 'Get Well' wishes.
Steve.

A huge special thankyou to Christine for her User Award. It was a lovely surprise and very much appreciated.
And also lots of thanks to everyone for their comments and votes. They have made me fell better even though my virus seems to be hanging around and is now suspected by my doctor as being Swine Flu.
