Saw this in my fav the other day and was dying to get to it Sylvia - EPZ was on slow go and I got so frustrated that I went out of it - better today, so coming back to it and it is all what it promised to be on the thumbnail and more - the colouring of the bird is just beautiful and the detail especially on the head is cracking - a lovely shot - Ina
