I count myself very fortunate to even see this grey beauty, let alone photograph him. I was on the lookout for his larger cousin the Kestrel, but I certainly needed to up the shutter speed to keep up with him.

Hi Collin - you have a great collection of work here, love the water droplets and still lifes. The wine glass really kills me - I stand in awe of the idea let alone the execution! Thamks for your help with my humble efforts - I'll definately try the glycerine just as soon as Amazon get it to me - thanks again. Tony
