They are striking with marvelous feather patterns and subtle color changes with a bright speculum! Great close-up Doc!

Indeed they do have some rather lovely plumage markings I think Ann.

Nice one lass - thanks for the reminder my friend.

BTW the new system searches the Gallery differently and is only picking up images via information in the Tags. So the Scientific Name needs to be entered there, as well as in the Scientific Name field, along with the common name if it's not in the title. Any other information you want to add to the Tags would be a bonus! I hope you can help with this.
