nice one Barrie, very much like the completely unusual idea of shooting the rear of Fenn when most of us where still in the top of the field shooting the more traditional shots.

love the hay bale, and what fantastic timing - i don't think this would have worked at all if you had not waited for him to reach the light. top banana.

hopefully he will have perfected hovering next time we go back - just awaiting better light.
