Nice series!! Love the preening pic! ;-)

Gracias intrinsic! Gracias Emily! Si, creo que los usaban en los adornos de la realeza egipcia.
Gracias Gilma! a veces no admiramos las cosas que son muy comunes porque estamos acostumbrados a verlas.

Beautiful creatures, when they do the extending of the wings, picture # 2, it is such an amazing sight.
