V1 is simply superb Lillian of that there is no doubt, V2's acceptable but the shutter speed and focus is just a little off, but it's still a great effort.

V 1 is quite excellent in every way, Lillian, another fish making it's final appearance......such impressive detail.
And of course V 2 is a much better shot than anything I would have achieved had I been there.
Full marks to you.
