Thanks!

Hehe, Ade. Not for this shot but I've got a few for which I had to duck. I might upload it one day. Swans are quite scary when they are flying 1 metre above you. Wink

Very good Smile Although the one at a lower altitude has his left leg a little higher... so only a 5.9 on this occasion I'm afraid!

*grin*

Take it easy,

Beautiful as well, but I think I prefer the second upload...somehow it's more dynamic...great.
I see we use the same camera... mine just packed up and am waiting to find out what went wrong. Luckily it's still in guarantee.
