Except he isn't anymore. He's now a supermodel. Since his makeover, and signing with a new agency in readiness for December. We decided to celebrate. Ended up with my old friend the Abbot. Ever the poser Scruff decided he and Abbot should have their picture taken. He was inspired by our lovely friend Lillian and her images........... Hope he doesn't expect breakfast in nest.

Many thanks for yesterdays c & c on 'Iris..2'. Especially to Colleen and Bob (bobpaige1) for their UA's.

good to see your bringing scruff up in the proper manner Peter Wink a fine image

Peter, Scruff looks in his eliminate there fine and fluffy! BUT what a sad site beneath his feet! An EMPTY bottle, It really must have been hard for you to photograph an Ex Abbot! But I'm sure that help is on the way to replenish the poor sole!Wink

This is just wonderful Peter, and such a clever scruff, No how idea how long you sat there or how many bottles of The Abbot you empties before you got this . Well worth the wait.

Superb photograph of our Scruff .

I've heard about the drunken birds in Newcastle on a Saturday night but why go there when I can see them on here. A bottle open this one Peter.
10 Sep 2015 10:11PM
Right now I am taking lots of bottles up to the hide to see if my robins will pose like this. What a superb shot Peter. Scruff is scruff no more. You will have to come up with a new name for him now. Cathy
