David,

Wonderful colours, composition and clarity. I know we (photographers) normally try and avoid mid day light but I think it works really well on this photograph.

Another fantastic image Dave, so jealous, so very jealous.
I would frame this and put it on my dining room wall (if I was behind the lens).

Superb in every aspect. It has encouraged me to stray away from the biggest aperture on my long lens ! I spend way to much time at f4, loosing critical detail on the tail and a trailing leg !

Top job. Smile

Mike
