Yes I like it - from the thumbnail I thought it was a mirror image created in PS and I thought HO! HUM! so what.

However it ain't that - so I'm glad I took a peek -

Why I had to go to that lengthy explanatation gawd knows lol

WOW what a response!!!!!!! I have just come home from a hard day at work to find my first EC award!! Thank you Pete, it is much appreciated!!
The funny thing is I was on the verge of giving my photography a rest for a while as I thought I had been trying too hard recently. Obviously it has paid off!!
Thank you everyone for your kind comments and support, this has now given me the encouragement to carry on!! I am now a happy bunny :o) and will carry on regardless.

Regards to all

This is a great simple shot - well done and well done on the EC too! Which made your eyes water most - the onions or the EC?

Lol Susan. In answer to your question, there isn't one !!The onions made my eyes water, and the EC had my head spinning, and it still is!! Thanks for the comment, much appreciated.

Never got round to congratulating on this fine shot. I appreciate it's a bit different from your normal stuff - bit like my EC, but then you have to bloody good to get an EC for wildlife . . .

There's something about the background that really makes this shot.

Well done,
