That looks fun, Helen Smile. When I was a child, a similar game we used to play was called 'fiddlesticks', I wonder how many of you remember it? Carol

A stunning observational study Helen, very cleverly worked and captured from a great point of view. The monochrome certainly enhances the mood and suspense.
