Award Shortlist   

Here's one I prepared earlier

By MrsS    
I actually took this prior to the one I posted the other day, hence the title.

There were dozens of these chaps and chapesses along the road, so we stopped at every opportunity to bag "another one"

If anyone has ever seen the Billy Connolly sketch where he imagines the discussion between the lionesses about attacking the zebra (I think he decided to name them Ethel and Agnes), I was reminded of that.

It seemed that these guys were co-ordinating their appearances, and I was convinced that they had some sort of radio linkage . . .

"Right, they've just my shot my good side, Albert, heading your way now. I stood on the right-hand bank so the two guys had the better view, if you stand on the left, there won't be any arguements, Okay?? Don't forget to radio on ahead to Cecil once they're out of sight! OVER"

I'll get my coat!

Anyway, I like this chap, even if I did have to grab the best shot I could round Paul Smile

Another HANDHELD @ISO1600 1/40sec @f4.5

(did run it through a noise reduction program, tho') Wink

Thanks for Looking - - soon be Christmas! Smile

Thanks Mari and Simon.

It was Si - - poor light and p!$$!ng down! I put the sharpness down to Canon's FABULOUS image stabiliser! (Tho I have forgotten to switch it off before now when I've used the tripod again! Sad)
