Good image, well taken.
The mesh is only visible on the bg and doesn't detract. Using a wider aperture/ adding blur in PP would help remove it if it does bother you.

Mis-read your notes and thought for a moment you had bought a jewish lens...that left me puzzled to say the least, until I re-read having cleaned my specs. Senility lightSad
He looks a tad on the defensive and is giving you the evil eye, Barbara. Doesn't like having his photo taken!

I've seen this fellow at Birdland at Bourton on the Water but I can't for the life of me remember what his name is. He does look rather cold and under the weather

He's got devil eyes, spotting a punk hairstyle and does not like your lens poking through his wire mesh either. Smile Neat shot Barbs.
