Nice to see a different angle Cheryl. I think it adds something, drawing you to wonder what he's looking at.

A change from 'normal' bird portraits, and it works well. Great idea.

Ha, ha, Ade. I've had to save a long-time for this one. And someone (I think K) moved the bench, so I didn't even know where to leave the money.

Thanks Pete. I have to retire now though. I said 20 ECs or POTW. Perhaps I can create a new user id and just leave this one as a reminder. Wait that'll cost me money.

Thanks all. Just thought that this bird had such a lovely profile that it deserved to be seen/recorded.

Well if it wasn't K it must have been Keithh. Someone moved it.

Or has the location has changed back to the telephone box (if it hasn't been vandalised again by Mattwaggie).

Ah Ade, you say the nicest things.

Seriously looking at trying to book a couple of days up near Flamborough instead.

Thanks Paul.

Great capture and congrats on the EC :0)

I've got one very similar to this lying around on my computer at home waiting to be uploaded. Excellent detail in this one though.

It must be the heat lol.

Cracking profile Cheryl and a nice dark background to contrast the profile against.

Only slight nit would be the top left corner? but can't crop it tighter without breaking the facial disk.

Thanks everyone. All comments appreciated.

No more posts from me this week. Got to do some work then off for a couple of days and heading up to Keithh country. So I'll need eyes in the back of my head, perhaps I can take Cheeky along for protection.
