'The Scent' lol
If I remember rightly you saying 'God they Stink' Smile
and they certainly do all pumped up with testosterone.
This is a cracker, really like the blurred out fg and positioning yourself for the clear head shot. Sniper tactics well practiced.
Good eye colouring and detail Sylvia.

A super shot Sylvia. Not easy to get a shot like this with all the foliage and focus jumping all over the place. This shows the moment so well.
