The birds are great but a small crop at the bottom to erase the twig(??) would make good into excellent.Smile

Never seen lapwing in water before. Never seen so many of them in one spot!

What wonderful light and colour, brings the birds to life (they can be a bit drab if you don't get a shot of them like this)!

I agree, Bill, the removal of the twig has centred attention on the Lapwings - and those super reflections..!
Cracking good shot, mate, well done.

A fine shot of this flock of lapwings with some great reflections captured. There are lots of these to be seen at Slimbridge at the moment
