Mum and bub.

Taken from my roof nearly 40yrs ago, from approx 75metres away,
eyepiece projection with 6" f/6 Newt. Vignetting was deliberate; I thought it
put all the emphasis on the subject, a bit like a subdued spotlight.
Taken with Ricoh KR10 Kodak Ektar 25.

Thanks Leon; I hope you like the other bird one too. You don't have to reply
to it, I'll just assume that you liked it.

Thanks Derek. If you look at the figures for fauna losses, its no surprise that
you will notice these pockets of hugely reduced numbers.

Thank you Bob,
The sharpness is mostly attributable to my favourite film at
that time, Kodak Ektar 25 which was by far the sharpest colour film I ever used.
