I have been very unwell with a virus for the past number of days, so I need to catch up with you all when I'm feeling up to it.
I wanted to upload something but had nothing prepared, so I grabbed this one quickly taken last month.

A Griffon Vulture in an enquiring pose. I hope you like him.

Many thanks for all your C&C's on my 'Bengal Mix'.
Just to clear up a point. Not all Bengal Male's are white, it just happened that this one was. I think some members got confused when I said 'the male is white' thinking that all male's are white.

Best wishes for a good week.

Steve.

Simply wonderful capture.

Take the top of a bottle of Famous Grouse , poor three fingers into a glass, add warm lemon with the rind into the glass, add a couple of dispersible asprins.
It will not help the cold/virus at all but I can guarantee it will make happier.
