I think it rhymes with heaven :-) Haven't they made a nice formation? Like. Cheers, Rosa.

Hi Rosa

Perhaps I should have used the modern version of the rhyme, as opposed to the older one.

So I have amended the title. You have to enlarge to see one magpie obscures another.

WISH! All the best Peter

It was almost to be a secret Peter and now I wish I had seen the double one!

Nice formation - Jethro

Thanks Jethro

Took this shot from the garden, a rare excursion at the moment. I had managed to get myself off the floor.

Slipped disc!

All the best from Terra Firma, Peter

Seven for a secret never to be told! Nice capture, Peter! Theolfa

pedrocut on August 21, 2011

Hi Theolfa

I WISH I could say that you were right, but if you look at the the third one from the right and enlarge, you will see two!

Looking at this info you can choose the rhyme

Best wishes Peter

Hi Peter at first I saw the 7 magpies, but when I read the comment of jethrohoyt, I saw that the third one looks a little bit unusual. I think this is the hidden one.
