I prefer to be in the bush with the animals than a crowded city.

I also like the bottom photo better.

Thanks for the input! It was one of those "looking at both so long you couldn't decide moments!"

Canonuser- Haha...I didn't even notice the twig until you mentioned it! I'll see if my skill level is up to twig removal. :oops:

Thanks. I was on a bird walk and according to our guide it was a rare/seasonal bird for the area. As always, I am a disaster with remembering names, so again, I can't recall the name :oops:
