Don't know if this is the right thread to say it in, but I love your new avatar, Voronwë!

Thank you, Eldy! Best picture I'll probably ever take. Did you notice the new signature that went with it?

The colours of the bird against the blue sky are stunning.

Thanks Jude. The amazing thing is that it is virtually the first picture that I took with my then-new (and still fairly new) phone, after the first Galaxy 21 Utra that I got was broken and had to be replaced soon after I got it.

When we were in Chicago, standing in line for the observatory; a guy in front of us took a photo of the nearly-full moon with his phone. I saw him take it and he could see the CRaTERs of the moon. The craters. It was incredible. He told me it was the Galaxy S22 Ultra. That’s yours too, V? Right?

I’ve been dying with camera envy ever since.

Cormorants are so cool!

Their feathers are not oiled to make them waterproof like most water fowl. They bomb dive and then sit there drying out, with their wings spread like that.
His philosophy was a mixture of three famous schools -- the Cynics, the Stoics and the Epicureans -- and summed up all three of them in his famous phrase, 'You can't trust any bugger further than you can throw him, and there's nothing you can do about it, so let's have a drink."
