Good evening, Willem
This is a surprise that I enjoy. The name of the bird is known to me. Today I see the bird that first time. It looks particularly beautiful. Colors and details are excellent in reproduction. For that I give you 5 stars ***** I reply to your comment today following. I live further away from the railway line. Thank you very much for all your nice comments. Have a nice weekend and all the best including your family. Sincerely Christel
