Hares, Sedge Warblers and Whitethroat

By Ray42
Many thanks for the kind comments and clicks on the Barn Owls - quite pleased with the first attempt at inflight shots - tried again this Saturday and not one was even remotely any good - beginners luck!! A special thanks to Ann (EAS) for her precious User Award - most humbled. Doc says that I am now 80% fit and well on the mend and says a bit of warm bright weather might help - yep it certainly would. Still I managed to get out for a few hours at Dungeness reserve and managed todays offereing - I hope you enjoy them - as they say Hare today and Goon tomorrow!!! Very little PS work was done on these images other than a slight crop.
As always constructive critique and modifications are always welcome.

Oh, my! What a wonderful set! Can't wait to see what you come up with once you're 100% better if this is what you offer at 80%!! Just adore those Hare images, all 3 of them with V1 being in 1st place for me.

A nice set of nature images - that hare certainly looks alert - really like the one of him having a nibble on the grass - reminds me of the one that got in our back garden and had a feast Smile
