Good Morning,

WWT Arundel and late in the day we were sat at the outdoor patio enjoying a warming coffee when a racket went up and these guys took to the skies , Canada Geese Branta Canadensis .... a beautiful sight to witness I had the D90 in my hand with the 18 - 105 lens so not as ready for this basic grab shot as I could have been. V1 a crop from the original ... v2 the original .....

I have bowed to the normal of leaving room to "fly" into... Wink However the original v1 was deliberate to give the idea of photo finish type thing first past the frame Smile

I urge large and for window users f11 and ctrl+ ..... for mac user large and cmd+

Many thanks for the comment and votes on Tonbridge Sunset,and indeed a few other images , all votes and constructive comment are gratefully received and truly appreciated. Colin and Mari

Colin, you have done well with this, and reacted fast to the sounds, or was it my slurping my hot chocolate you heard through my frozen lips! like the cropped version, as can see the geese better, and details, looks like they know you are aiming at them.
Well captured
