Spent a wonderful day sitting in freezing cold water (literally), bent double over the camera (which was an inch off the water, I checked my insurance before I went) sitting perfectly still waiting for these little beauties to appear. Worth ever second.

Thanks for taking a look, all comments critiques and clicks very welcome.

What a cracking good shot Dave. Lovely exposure catching two brilliant bright eyes and a gleaming nose. A stunner.

This is first class and well worth sitting in the water for this fine shot. Love the dof and excellently worked out.

Absolutely delightful, David - superb detail, clarity and pose. I opted to carry out this exercise in the summer a couple of years back - admire you for choosing December!!! Wink
