Thanks !

By Len1950
I gave myself a good break from EPZ as I found it very time consuming and quite demanding to be truthful , I didn't just want to leave without saying thanks and good bye to all the wonderful people on here who have shown me support and in many cases given me good advice, I really am grateful to each and every one of you.
I still look in at my leisure every now and then but to be honest don't miss the amount of time I used to spend in front of the PC.
I'll leave you with a shot of my favourite bird, taken in rather harsh light.
Once again thanks for your support over the last couple of years.

This is an amazing image, Len, you couldn't have timed it better. I do hope you will reconsider your decision, you and your images would be sorely missed by many here on ePZ. Whatever your choice, I wish you all the best for the future. Carol

Len please don't go!!! You have given me so much encouragement and support over the last couple of years - just come back with the odd image now & again. We will appreciate your images all the more if you leave us wanting more!!! Please don't go for good, keep in touch anyway! Lou xx

Wow! Absolutely stunning image! Sorry you are really heading off but do understand. Given days like today, no problem sitting here admiring other's images but there has to be life away from the computer! Take care and hope you may indeed look in from time to time with more images of this wonderful standard.

Len, when I first came on site you were one of the voices of encouragement that kept me going and I really appreciate your support. EPZ is time consuming (as Nick has found) but it would be nice if you could just pop in now and then.
A stunning image I can only dream aboutTongue!
26 Sep 2012 7:59AM
what a wonderful image ....
I know where you are at with the time spent in front of the screen... but how about popping in occasionally .. do love your images
All the best,

Len I missed you a lot... always liked your birds.. I can't find as much time as some now but then there are many around who pop in from time to time... Would love to see you every now and then!
Have success with your photos.. wish I was half as good at wildlife.

Nice "knowing" you Len. A great shot to bow out with

Great shot Len.
Good luck in the future.


It is rather time consuming and addictive, but I've found with recent bad connections and faulty routers that I am managing to 'wean' myself away a little as well.

A cracker of a shot - time to perfection too
