Hi everyone, this is an image that was hidden away as a 'variant' some time ago (taken through glass) and I thought it may be worth a viewing on it's own. Makes a change from the bird shots too Wink
Many thanks for the votes and comments on my previous upload, so much appreciated as always,

Glad that you found this again Geoff, as like the look that she/he has found something of great interest in the water, a real nose in the air attitude, well captured

Very nice Geoff and great comp. Congrats on the awards.
P.S. The new camera isn't a compact Wink but they had the audacity to put it in a bag with 'I AM NIKON' plastered all over the side. I was so embarrassed walking back to the car with it LOL

Yes, that's how lenses work. Wink Seriously, though, the quality of this is great for having been taken through a tank side.
