Blimey, I must visit Argyll and Bute again soon ;-)

Ha ha. That'll teach me for clicking the first 'Yosemite Wall' crag I see... Did you not see Bald Eagles the last time you were in Scotland Mark? :D

You don't mean it was Malham?

I wish! Although that's not to dismiss Scotland's wonderful eagles. Saw a Vulture in Yosemite last time, but the best thing I saw wildlife wise was a humming bird, had no idea they were so small. Could almost have passed off as a slightly larger and more iridescent Blue Bottle. Fabulous shot by the way, 5 all the way.

This beautifully illustrates how birds tend to keep their heads roughly horizontal whilst their bodies and wings do all the moving. Apparently they to this to optimise their vision. (Drones are starting to do this, with cameras mounted on gimbals.)
