A thrill to see a new set of feathers. He looks like a hunter at first, yet his beak suggests chicken qualities. Kind of a grouse, I guess. You presented him completely with full body and then portrait. Excellent!! TG

Morning eager beaver, wonderful warm/hot weather in Durban, you will have a great time here away from the cold. They are busy burning sugar cane unfortunately so the air is hazy and our noses are blocked.
Wow well captured bird images, well done...great feather detail

Good morning Herman, had a late night last night and therefore up late this morning........... Winter holidays? We just get snowed in, 'a bit of warmth'? you're so nesh south of the equatorGrinGrinGrinGrin hasn't dropped below freezing yetGrin

This guy looks as though he has some maturity about him, you can see all the experience in his eyes.............. Two great images, as per usual, well focused.

Thought I might need to translate.............. Nesh is an English dialect adjective meaning unusually susceptible to cold weather and there is no synonym for this use

Two beauties, Herman. Can I choose, in the end with great difficulty I choose V2, you have captured the detail of the feathers and colour and the look in v1, but I really like the whole bird in v2 ... Carol Grin
