Very artsy, and apparently unusual bird. never seen one of them. Photo.net finally upgraded software, and pbase should follow their cue.

Fantastic flight shot of this very unique looking bird, Tom. He looks a little "rough" around the edges.

Congrats on catching him!

Beautiful capture Tom. V. I agree that Pbase is too slow - may have to take a break too.
