Thanks for dropping by and especially to all those who have taken the time to comment and/or vote on my last uploads. Always nice to see you!

This is a shot of a dunlin flying past - it can't have been going too fast or I wouldn't have managed to capture it

--- Following on from some comments I've removed the blemishes from the water to see what you think (see V2). Must admit I don't even think of this sort of thing so it's good to get the feedback.

This is brilliant, Alex, and the bird is beautifully detailed. Love that reflection and the space you have left for it to fly into.
If it were mine (fine chanceSad) I'd remove some of those blobs in the water, if not all of them, but I am very pickyGrin!

Bird in flight and reflections, isn't that a little greedy Alex Grin Jealous or what! Blush. The detail on the bird is brilliant, especially given your focal zoom, over all a fantastic image, one to be very proud of.

Wow...I wouldn't have thought of those blobs either but looking at V2, it does make a positive difference with them not there!

Utterly brilliant capture in V1, by the way.

I'm partial to take it as you capture it .
In saying that you have done a beautiful job both on the capture and the presentation of this bird.
Very striking in deed.

Have a good week end.
