A super capture of this beautiful bird, Sylvia, but such an unfortunate latin name! Carol

Excellent shot Sylvia. What a shame he/she looks so grumpy!!
By the sound of things your weather is about the same as ours-- I think I will have to take up knitting.
A beautiful capture! Don't think the bird looks 'grumpy' at all...lovely blackie. Smile

A great over the shoulder pose Sylvia, cracking feather detail and the diagonal perch is just right,

A fine image Sylvia, as has been said the feather detail is excellent,
unfortunately the weather down on the garden isle is just the same,
looking good for Sat though.

I fail to see how a bird can have an expression. Looks a great capture with agreat pose down the back and turn of head Sylvia
