Don't think I've seen one in a tree before Keith. Mind I've not really seen very many of these guys.

A super pic this lad.

I think the reason the thumbnail isn't displaying properly is due to the picture size at over 5000px. I've uploaded one as a test at 4500 px, but usually do mine at 3500px.

.... and we need the scientific name in the Tags too lad. That's how the system finds pictures on searches.

I have never seen an image of one of these beauties perched in a tree. A great capture Keith!
