Just a wonderful shot, and imo better for not including the ref.

Very well presented Neil, and just enough detail in the crowd to see them but not so much that they detract from the fat guys Smile

Another fine image of something we are unlikely to see Neil. PS, saw your image used in the K10D Pentax advert. On the inside cover of BBC Wildlife. Well done mate. Ron.
