An excellent set Carol....I love all three and especially him eyeballing you in V2, an incredible pov.
I can practically hear the delight and excitement in your voice now that Spring has arrived and the critters are back....
Well done on your awards and GE yesterday, all well deserved.

A little beuaty Carol, I wonder what type of skipper it is, no doubt Celestun (who is uploading on here again) and Matt Berry would know!
