Many, many thanks for the superb reception on yesterday's upload.

I was overwhelmed by the response, and special thanks must go to Quoise for the GEA, along with Pamelajean, bricurtis, anglingandyq, Ianrobinson, JuBarney, taggart, tommyld, BydoR0, CarolG and franken for their very much appreciated user awards.

Another kingy this evening, looking like a blue dart as he dives from his perch to attempt another catch.

Hope this is as well liked as yesterdays.

thank you for looking.

Phil
