This is Twite good Kim (lol). Congratulations of this gorgeous picture of this hard to photograph bird! I hope you see an end to the plater on the leg Kim!!!! TFS!!!!!!
Yeah, it's worth just about anything when you wind up with an image as lovely as this.
A most wonderful and deserving capture Kim. I'll send you some chi for quicker healing of that leg.
Hi Kim, lucky you to get such a fine image, another one to write up on the plaster lol, be well soon.
Well worth your efforts - hope you recover soon.
