I've been there a few times. They do put on quite a show. Nice and clear for being shot through all that glass.

A big thankyou to you all; my first RC and I'm so pleased! By the way, did you know that when the tiger dives, he moves his ears flat against his head in order to keep out the water; now if only I could do that!

Thanks Denis and Penny. This is my favourite shot - I just love the way the bubbles are streaming off him and the meat as it gets mashed against the window! In hindsight, I really do not like the border, but it's there now and I can't change that.
