Ruffled feathers on a bad 'hair' day Grin, and that is some serious 'weather' wear, Lillian. I've not seen a 'line up' like that since I left work TongueGrin

A most beautiful Bird of Prey with glorious colour and markings. Whilst the Lesser Spotted Camera Pointers have been wonderfully assembled and captured in their native habitat.

Lovely shot of the Owl and the Homo sapiens I believe are known as Togs.

Great shot Lillian, V1 is SO sharp, V2, well what can I say about a group of people dressed for the arctic and obviously having a great time, enjoying each others company, looks like you've had a nice day out.
PS How's cold going?

Excellent capture of the bird with superb plumage detail: and that gang in V 2 is enough to frighten all wildlife away, I reckon, esp. with those 'big guns'.
