Superb avian photography with every image being a cracker, however the lead image just pips the post to take the winners medal.

Thanks for sharing Lillian

Absolutely perfect, especially V1 which is my favourite. The feather detail is fantastic. Many years ago my husband was admiring a swan who was swimming in a very determined way and then suddenly it was out of the water on the attack. (I shouldn't have laughed, my husband said it was definitely not funny).

Majestic birds swans, stubborn birds Gulls, neither gives in easily.
Where I stay in Urban Glasgow near the Kelvin River, we get gulls and crows, sometimes a Hawk wanders down the river into town, the gulls and crows attack and the Hawk tires of them and leaves.

When the local hooligan birds try their attack on the daily visit of the Grey Heron it flies calm by not even a sideways glance, total disdain.

There's a class structure Avian Style there too.
