The jay has chosen to perch at exactly the right spot on this pretty perch, Dean: as always, detail and colouring is spot on, and the image a pleasure to view.

Hi David, well I really don't know about the inspiration side mate, but patience and dedication I certainly have in abundance....All learned from time by the river, waiting for the KF's and not daring to move or even breathe too loudly Smile Also the single life does help slightly, no time for a relationship because there aint a woman out there that would put up with the fact I hate being indoors TongueWink
