    Yes, he was for a while, but then he decided to stay there.

    Thanks and from what I read, they are not endangered or certainly not the species found in the Gulf of Mexico. The one you see was among a group of twenty or so that took flight when the school was disturbed. The challenge is trying to lock in on one and keep it in focus.

    Thanks RicMisc. Will you continue to make attempts at posting?

    Always amazing pictures on here.

    Here's one of the river at Royal Leamington Spa. (We just usually call it Leamington).

    It's a lovely building, but it's buried in the back streets and surrounded by concrete monsters.

    Wonderful Paul.
    The first one is quite serene with the Willow drooping towards the calm water, the Church rising above the village.
    What church btw?

    1509 !! The Spanish were just beginning to set foot over here discovering the comparitively crude stone structures of the native inhabitants; "Anasazi", in the southwest.

    Thanks for sharing.

    I'm just going to try to upload my pictures again, hope this'll work out.





    Both were shot in Italy last summer.

    Edit: Since uploading is still not working for me I'll post links to the pictures

    I'm checking out air fares and Euro conversion rate. Amazing!
    Where in Italy were these taken, if you don't mind sharing?

    Nice.

    The church in Leamington is All saints Leamington Priors


    We're very lucky in Coventry - which is a relatively small city - that we're surrounded by history in the City Centre. Unfortunately it was developed as an industrial city, and so you get these wonderful buildings scattered through the centre and swamped in modern ones. Ford's hospital is on a backstreet with nothing of interest around it.

    Here's another gem which sits isolated by the ring road.



    This is Cook Street Gate built in 1385. It sits at the top of a small garden, but is virtually unused. I often ride through it as it leads to a path to a bridge I cross on my bike. The whole city was walled until after the Restoration of the Monarchy when the King ordered it pulled down so as not to oppose royal power in future. Coventry was Parliamentarian during the civil war.

    The crenellations atop were added later.
