Aw, they are so cute. My grandson calls them double-decker sheep which I think more or less sums them up - come on, he is only three and a half.

I suppose I can't get away with posting in an "L" topic without posting a Lightning shot, huh? tongue This is from a couple of months ago. Only one of the batch that actually produced something.

Btw Sue...love that shot.

I like that, Ren.

Ertrum, is it really called Little Ben? I've never heard of that before - lovely.

Me too! If they're inside it drives me mad, but outside I can just about handle them.:D

I'm sometimes a little unsure whether my efforts deserve to be alongside some of the truly
stunning photos that others put up here. I clearly need to improve my techniques! smile

This was taken at Limone on Lake Garda, Italy.

L is for lorikeet - this is a rainbow lorikeet. I love their colours.
