Good morning....

Also like to thank John (JohnoP), Christine (ChristineD), Dave (Mistere) for their UA's.... and lastly Andysnapper for his "Imaginary diamond and gold encrusted UA" an unusual award which I will treasure with the others.GrinGrin

A beautiful creature and two excellent photographs Colleen. Amazing that she was still on the trail of her prey with onlookers around.

Yes sometimes they are so focused that they do not worry about us, you can see by my focal length how close we were...we sometimes get to see them kill....not one of my favourite pastimes to see them choking their prey to death...
