What wonderful plummage. Looks like its just been washed and now waiting for a blow dry.
Lisl: He was ruffling it all up, Alan
Ooh, nice photo, Elisabeth. a lovely shot.
Lisl: Than YOU, Frank
Maybe it's old but it's still breathtaking...

Fabulous shot, LOVE the colours.
Lisl: Thank you, Astrid - I twiddled just a little but haven't got much to twiddle with!
Absolutely brilliant shot, Lisl - you'd win a wildlife photography competition with this one! Go for it!
Lisl: Tom - you have overwhelmed me with your kind comment - thank you
Definitely one of your best, Lisl. I'm with Tom; this is a sure prize winner.
Lisl: Thank you so much, Beverly
far more flamboyant than the rather drab grey specimens I have seen
Lisl: I think the contrast with the backgroud seemed to bring them out, Martin
One for the Countryfile Calendar, I'm sure. Very good capture.
Lisl: Thank you so much, Suzanne
