Thanks PrincessHannah - it does look that way, doesn't it? I've often noticed birds look like that when you take a photo straight on. Either that or they really don't like being photographed ;)

Argy Bee, I was thinking the same, but didn't want to offend anyone (birds included) who might like the less-stunning cousins :)
