The span of the wings reminded me of one of DaVinci's flying boats. :D

I tried that Doug but all I could muster was the "cough, cough" of an old bi-plane. Been in naval aviation for a good many years though Doug, thought we would never get that pidgon off the ark. :-k :lol:

Thanks Jim, it is sort of "stealthy" looking :D

Yeah, me too! And then I start salivating, and I open my mouth, just waiting for that spoonful of tasty goo to fly in. Man, those are old memories! :lol:

This is a excellent front-on shot, Ken. Nice and sharp on the face, legs, and leading edge of the wings, with the trailing edges soft enough to clearly suggest that they're farther back. If it were all sharp, it'd be confusing.

Yeah your right Rik, the softness of the trailing edge does give depth to the wings. I thought at one time it would have liked it a bit sharper there.

I suppose my mom used to feed me like that too but there was nothing more fun than getting a handful and just rubbing it all over your face. :wink:

Thanks Rik :D
