Good job you're not Pete then Tongue

Thanks all.

Looks like it was worth getting wet for, but I expect Dan will find something he does not like Wink

What's fascinating for me is that beedy eye and look of the Kestrel.

Thanks everyone.

I was having the mickey taken out of me during this shot as well, which doesn't help concentration. It seems that amongst friends of friends I have a reputation for these blurry foreground shots. Which apparently a particular one of these friends hates Grin

Still never mind! Thanks for the comments.

Not an ePZ member Smile

Just someone I have met a few times on my falconry days. He doesn't attend any more apparently because he hates this style of shot and possibly feels that I set up too many of them! Still you don't have to get down for them if you don't want to Smile

Excellent shot Cheryl and thorouly deserving of the EC in my opinion. You could always try a right-angled viewer when you don't fancy the ground
