I'm not a duck
The morning started wet.... and got wetter.

This pigeon wished he was a duck I think as he looks most disgruntled.

He (or she!) does look a tad fed up. On the other hand, pigeons do seem to preen a fair amount, partly with a view to avoid getting wet, and it works quite well (as evidenced by the raindrops sitting on this bird's teflonoid mantle). Anyway this is a fine shot Delia, sharp and well exposed.

(BTW I inadvertently closed the tab for this page halfway through typing this comment, but going to my history and coming back to it, my draft comment was still there and intact. That would never have happened before the revamp, so well done Ollie and all concerned).

Thanks John... and I'm glad that new feature worked for you... I've not really tried it out yet... except this afternoon I'd started a reply, but then had to look at something in another browser. While there I had a quick look at BF and there was my half-written post showing there too!! I really, really, didn't expect that LOL
