Come on in.....

By teocali
Thanks to Terry (Terry_L) for organising another EPZ Meet at BWC Lingfield, Surrey on the 27th December (this has now obviously become a tradition) and it was very enjoyable, if a tad cold. Great to meet up with old friends and to put names to faces Smile
I was persuaded by Mike (Greyheron) to leave my Canon kit in the bag and use my Panasonic G2 with the newly introduced 100-300mm lens!
The Otters were braving the ice and snow and looking very appealing.
Settings: F/5.2 1/100sec -0.33EV ISO100 AV@228mm handheld

Many thanks for your C&Cs on my last upload - really appreciated as always.

Not much one can say about this, just enjoy looking at it Smile

The BWC otters certainly know how to pose for the camera Wink
Perhaps the BWC do photography modelling courses for the animals !
