      Very nice, difficult enough to get them in the frame, but this is sharp, with a good reflection to boot. Well exposed, now if that beak was trailing Very well captured Hugh

      Excellent Hugh!! You get full marks just for getting it in the frame and with a reflection to boot. Don't take any notice of Lance. He's just pushing the boundaries!!

      Excellent. Great to get this fast flyer. Would consider running a noise filter on the Bg. A very well done.

      Thanks very much for the kind comments and for viewing. Anton and Allan I saw the noise (or do you say "I hear the noise") and did some noise reduction. I hope it is now better.

      And Lance, I have so much fun trying these shots that I will definitely keep on trying. To me one of the best things about photography is that you can always get a better shot.

      Thanks again
