Yes I agree with Jon, super capture. I hope to be doing some of this later in the year, laying on a warm beach in the sun, that is.

Thanks for the comments everyone.
Ron, don't take it off your shortlist. The whole experience from the superb level of organisation, life onboard the boat, the knowledge of the guides and seeing the place and its nature at first hand will forever be memorable.

Great capture Melanie, must run.

How trusting these lovely creatures are, if only they knew what we are really like they would be off the beach in a shot.
A quite superb image, so relaxed, the calf lying on it's mother a great touch, and the colour of the sea in the bg is sublime, what a trip of a lifetime.
Many congratulations on yet another excellent image Mel.

All the very best

Grin that's so gorgeous, makes me want to flop about on a beach and dream of being as relaxed as them Tongue
