i too am the vain/painted bird! the longer one stares into these vibrant wonders from the then 50 year old rainer, the easier it is to become lost in them, until thyme ceases to exist. prometheus in flight!

Thanks for the nice comment, Owlqaeda. After many years, their ringing has recaptured my eyes. The loud call of the strutter vain bird.
