Or Aggression Part II.

Another of the female defending the perch. I love the way that this shows the structure of the feathers in great detail.

Shame that the perch was damaged in all the action, but I decided not to try to clone the lichen near the wing tip, though I may if I printed this at any time.

Thanks for the UAs to Harvey nd Rahul on yesterdays and to Les for the GEA. All greatly appreciated.
