Himalaya, please put the Nehru pic back. Removing it spoils a classic thread for any latecomers.

Lol I agree with the others, the original photo really should stay on! Common Buzzards are everywhere these days, saw one daydreaming out the window at work the other day, but it's not everyday you see Nehru, or have such a bloody good laugh

Lol took a moment for the penny to drop on that one... Well, to be honest it was the wistful look in its eye, as it totally overlooked a field full of rabbits, no doubt musing that if had only perched on Nehru's shoulder at that particular moment it woulda been truly immortalized, rather than overshadowed by the thread that had preceded it

Lol, people will be playing "where's wally?" with it next...the photo could become a classic (I think it's already one here lol)

Jan

P.s. if anyone's got time maybe they could google the original image to get it back up on the forum... everything seems to be on the net these days
