Deja vu all over again. Yesterday a tiny spastic slip to the delete key wiped out this photo completely from all of BP..don't ask, please...let's just say it happened before my usual gallon of morning coffee...In any event, it has to be resubmitted all over again. Want to thank you all for your wonderful comments the other day - no need to comment again.

Hope your week is going better than mine has been! :)

Definitely worth adding again. For the record, I've learned not to go anywhere near the keyboard before I've slurped down at least one cup (have nearly finished my second as we speak)...!

I wondered what happened. Of course, I thought it was something I said. Well, good, now I can get it back in my favorites. This is such an extraordinary photo, Valarie. Perfectly composed with the eye in the upper left third, and added impact with the black bg, and the beak and feathers show amazing detail. Thanks for re-posting. [Keep that coffee flowing.]
