I coould never put a shot like this in the recycle bin, even as you say, it is not pin sharp 'in the right places'.
A superb image, made that bit more interesting by the presence of the magpies.

Great shot Jon; a bit of humour but also showing the relationship between them - the nits must be really annoying if it's prefereable to have a bird pecking at your skull!!

Excellent details and colours.
Well done.

Symbiotic relationships in the animal kingdom are always fascinating to see, does make you wonder though which the host preferred... the bugs biting or the birds pecking.
Glad you didn't bin this one, it's a very interesting subject that we don't often get to see. Thanks for sharing it with us.
