I dunno, I stick you in my favourites only for you to post a shot like this.....You Sir are a swine!.....LOL
I don't really want to criticise it as it's far too good a wildlife capture and it's a species you don't see everyday, especially mating! However Smile it strikes me as just being a little flat and contrasty, that may well be down to your own personal taste or it's lossed something on the upload. Either way it's not really important and can easily be fixed!
Well spotted, I've only ever managed to capture the odd one, but to get them breeding is just awesome. Deserves an award, just for the rarity alone!

Nice one Phil. I think you have the ideal compromise on DOF, which is never easy with a mating pair of anything, let alone something rare like these! A great cepture.
Whow! What a shot! Big Click!
