At the risk of boring everybody, another from Bushy Park this morning in the excellent company of several epzers.
Many thanks to Lillian for lending me her Sigma lens for the morning without which I would have spent the morning photographing the bracken.
Thank you for looking and for your time - criticisms and comments are welcome.
Many thanks to Bob for his UA for Pontiac and to Dave87 for his UA for Otter.

That is really fantastic. People don't believe me when I tell them the Siggy 150-500mm is a great lens.

An outstanding image of this magnificent beast, a real monarch of the glen if ever I saw one. He looks most formidable and in peak physical condition and the 150-500mm sigma came in handy as you wouldn't want to get too close!Wink I have this lens and hope to put it to some use again if I ever get the chance to get out with the camera again
