You've certainly made use of that wonderful acer as a background whilst it was in such wonderful colour, Sylvia Smile. Another fine image. Carol

Sharp as a new tack Sylvia. Wonderful exposure clearly shows all the beautiful colours of the bird.

This superbly captured Sylvia. The lighter flecks in the green plumage show up beautifully and yes - it does look grumpy.
