A plain old Magpie. (Explored)

    Newer Older

    Who knew they were so colourful! This is my best attempt so far to get these in flight, and it had just gone behind those pesky grass stems. Grrr. A bit of PS cleaning, but the colour is unchanged.
    I will keep trying as one day I will get the shot I'm after.
