Allow me to deviate for a moment.
See below two pics of a very cute baby 'Common Kingfisher' who bounced off our office window this morning! He's still getting over the concussion I think :eye:

Since I started climbing I developed a big crack addiction.

He's really pretty, the pictures don't capture it completely, his colours are almost luminescent - happy to report he has flown away :thumleft:

Ja, I'd also fly away if you called me pretty!! :P

You might have had a pet bird for life if you'd called HIM handsome, or striking, or amazingly iridescent, or cool, or awesome...... but alas, you called him pretty :(
