This has to be the coldest I have ever been when out taking photos...at Paradise Park off the M25

Thank you for all the attention yesterday's Barn Owl had that was taken at BWC, and to Willie for the great Mod you did for me, there was some really good advice given...thank you

Off out with the new lens and Tripod tomorrow..hopefully! no trapped fingers this time, with my new Manfrotto.

Nice DOF & Detail there
One thing I would have done personally is leave a tad bit more room for the bird to look into, But thats just me Smile
But Brilliant photo

Yes, everyone Barb and I have had a wonderful day out with the new Manfrotto and head..what a heavy load!! but I can asure you that it is worth every ounce, (bankrupted though!) and goes so well with the new 150-500mm Sigma lens
the head just swivels where ever you need it, even behind you in a sec..need I say this...love it! so thank you so much Geoff for the advice..again took notice
