    David, Those are not shoulders - those are wing tips! Back to school ...

    Indeed Ross - bit annoyed I missed the takeoff, but can't have everything ;-)
    Thanks :)
    Ah, but the shoulders are on the side you can't see :P

    You are too modest as always, David (or you set your sights very high).
    A beautiful bird and nice shot with the sun lighting up its feathers like that.

    Hang around with Bird Photographers long enough and one's personal standards go up somewhat ;-)

  • David de Groot said:
    Yeah darn bird wouldn't play ball with the light ;-)
