    Or at least that was the tentative ID of a couple of folks who saw one of these images about a month ago. I never got around to posting the rest, but this guy worked the fashion runway really hard for about a half hour and deserves the extra exposure. Enjoy!

    Well done series Gordon. I only have one question....I mean, I understand why some folks have trouble finding time to process their best shots, but when you are retired....?? :tongue:

    Frank - One of my favorite sayings, alleged to be an ancient Spanish proverb, is "How beautiful it is to do nothing and then to rest afterward." Nuff said.

    It looks like he needs to grow into his eyes and neck. Cute fellow.
    He also needs to clean up his perch.

    Hi Chris - Those are pretty amazing eyes, aren't they? This guy was fun to shoot.

    Great eyes, particularly #4 which is just too cute for words.

    #4 is my favorite too, Neil. It's remarkable how such a gawky bird can be so cute.

    Thanks Ben. Those eyes are amazing! Since shooting this guy I haven't seen a mature YCNH to see if the bird "grows into" its eyes.

    Thanks Leigh. The next time I take a series of YCNH teenagers I'll make sure they clean up first! :biggrin:

    Thanks Harris. Let's hope that same concept applies to us people too! :smile:
