Hi everyone - please ignore this old post from 2013, a minor glitch from updating our login systems today :)  Cheers, Monica

Hi everyone,

Great photos last week! The inspiration for this week's challenge comes from the new Great Gatsby movie - has anyone seen it yet?  So, Glitz and Glam is the theme, or birds showing off! Looking forward to your photos.

Love the Peacock. :)

One of the first which sprang to mind was the beautiful Rainbow Bee-Eaters that I discovered breeding in a nearby suburb last year.
