Sorry dear members, I have not been around much, I got a bad flu and feel seriously bunged up, on top of that I have to got to work tomorrow and face the taxman!!
But after that it is off to Malaysia for 3 weeks, our first big holiday since 10 years.
If I can, I'll upload some more exotic birds and critters soon. Not to mention flowers and plants and architecture.. we'll see.

Two fine bird shots, Annette: sorry to hear you've been under the weather but 3 weeks in Malaysia should set you up nicely as well as affording excellent photo opportunities.

manipulation---- I darkened the background, then retrieved it and manipulated the shadows and lights, and mostly I have forgotten just what I did--- have a great trip

HA ha-- a person who does what you do might like some Fincks overalls! (I sure would for gardening)
