Refreshed page one and this thumbnail drew me in first. No wonder. This image is a beauty, even though flash was used. TG

Hi Alan, this is really a great shot of the little bird, you have captured it to perfection and presented well too.. I had missed the elephoant and the calf, this one too is fantastic shot, most natural image..
