After breakfast we went (very slowly) up the Austinville Valley Road again. For quite a bit of it Hans walked ahead of the car so he could listen.

Anyway we got to the top where Judy and I had a short wander into the forest. Suddenly she spotted a movement high up in a tree and managed to get me on to it.

Using her shoulder as a tripod I managed to get this picture.

Aren't they beautiful.

I don't know if you remember, but I'd seen one lower down the road a few days before but didn't get a very good picture of it - the light was better on this one fortunately.
