Nice shot! Catching a dipper in such detail is a good start, but to have it gathering moss too! Good bonus! Very well caught.

Great Stuff Kev. I can see the rain falling as well! Lovely pose of the Dipper. Kind of puts my next upload to shame...

A deserved EC, the detail is just excellent.

I spent a while trying with slow shutter speeds to get the right look to the water as well as the dippers. So alot of duff images from subject movement but occasionally I got a good one Smile
