Herman, lovely as usual. You have a privileged eye for spotting beauties.

I can almost hear the bird in V2, but i like the imagery in V1 better. For cold and rain, the bird does not seem to mind. And, what Marian said. You do indeed have that eye for beauty, Herman.

Lovely images v2 has better composition.
Two lovely captures. I envy your access to so much of natures wonderful creatures. Well done Herman. WesternRed.
