Super image, Tim, and rather mysterious. Love the flow of the composition - I personally think the grass adds to the shot.

Well it would be easy to take off the grass, but I liked the curve... so decided to leave it... rather like a trajectory!

Thanks!

Tim

I've been trying to shoot these guys for ages to no avail. Everything that needs to be is beautifully in focus and the blade of grass is very much a plus. Wonderful.

Malcolm

PS Can you tell me what shutter speed you were on? I must try harder....
