Poor fella, he can't help his looks, Ronnie, he has his mum and dad to thank for them Smile. He does have wonderful plumage, though, very well captured and presented.

Superb image Ronnie - I personally find thee birds quite beautiful - in their own way! The colours that shine through when the sun is on their feathers can be quite amazing. The detail on this image is outstanding. Lou
