Not quite so tatty anymore by ludwigsdiana

Not quite so tatty anymore

as more red and black feathers appear. I was watching them flitting up and down between the reeds for hours yesterday. It is very difficult to get a clear shot and I am at maximum zoom. Amazing to see how different the plumage develops and how neat some look.
Such a beauty...

@shutterbug49 I should imagine that it is a couple of weeks Debbie. It is difficult to tell, as some of them have finished others only halfway, and all looking so different atm :-)

Their transformation reminds me of how we humans go through something similar during our teenage years! Great shot.
