Felis, are you trying new avatars or are they changing automatically?

Whatever - they are all very beautiful :thumbs:

I have tried out a few, because the one I chose was so similar to Lucy's, I did not recognize myself anymore :slap:
I have a lot of photos of the Black Storks I visit at the zoo, but not all are going for an avatar!
By the way, one of the two has a broken beak!

Edit - how do you like this one? Looks okay?

I'm making an extra album for "my" black storks and post the link here. Not all the pictures are good, they don't always want to be photographed, or, like that day when one was flying, he was a bit too fast for me, but never the less ... there are 66 photos I made over the last 1 1/2 years or so.

Here is the link:

I clicked me through the album one by one and the album numbers them - and I wrote my favourites down on a paper here by my PC :whistling:

Thank you, Leonia, they are great models! Though, you know them "wild" - I have yet to see one outside the zoo!

The translation - no mention, you did the work, thank you for it!
