My apologies, as below I used the word "tired". Obviously it should be "tried". I'll blame the spell checker for selecting the wrong word from a typing error, even if I just did it wrong.
............. I can only suggest that I think if I had tired to draw that, it would seem so contrived that it wouldn't work. Not even William Cooper in his great drawings in Forshaw's books give anything like the impression of Geoff's pictures here. Can anyone find painted images of birds in books in postures as acrobatic as these (maybe apart from Audubon).
