What a fantastic photograph, I really like it!
Yes a really unusual photo of a magpie- almost looks like something more exotic!
Thank you. My daughter, aged 11, took the photo! She loves taking photos of birds in flight!
Wow, I think a career in wildlife photography could be looming......I really do like the photograph as its such an different angel Totally agree Lucy it does look exotic. I sometimes look at magpies and think how beautiful they are, most people dismiss them, but if they were scarce then I think people would think of them as magnificent, like I do!
There are loads of wildlife photography competitions out there if your into that sort of thing. This year the winner of the young British Wildlife Photography awards was Will Nicholls, who took a wonderful picture of a Red Squirrel. See link for the photographs.
