Last one of these for a while.

Intending to upload some on my website, which includes a few different looks.

Off for some lunch will check back later and continue my duties as GE.

Great shot, we have these birds breeding on the area that i look after, but the lek is in a darker area and my D80 doesn't cope that well at higher ISO.

Thanks all.

Thanks Iain for the UA, most appreciated.

The snow obviously helped with shutter speeds as it is nature's giant reflector Wink

Cracking shot - must have been difficult to get the exposure right on this one.
