Description:

A most cooperative bird. The last picture was the result of a serious under exposure, and an attempt to rectify the problem with IrfanView. Quite interesting effect...

Ironically the 'overexposed' shot shows some of the wing markings beautifully. Nice shots though.

Feel free to look at my ongoing (hopefully improving) collection of pictures on Flickr:
