Awesome, magnificent and any other superlative you wish to add. A real treat that you have posted this. Especially after your fox which well deserved the awards it gained.

Beautifully captured image Sylvia,
The composition and the unobscured reflection in the water really make this image,

Firstly for sitting in a stream for 4 hours this deserves so much praise Sylvia. Outstanding wildlife capture of one of my favourite mammals. The angle and lighting is first class as is the timing with food and inclusion of natural framing with the reeds and a killer reflection.
I do hope being in the water didn't affect your Arthritis too much.
Shortlisted for sure
Brilliant capture

Maybe I should have saved my award for ths one, Sylvia. This is absolutely stunning, in my honest opinion. I totally agree with Richard's comment above and would certainly believe this to be a very professional image and worthy of many awards.

I've taken many shots of voles before and would have been over the moon to add a absolute cracker like this to my p/f. The natural behaviour, the pose, the detail and reflection is captured superbly - please accept my U/A as well for a truly stunning shot - Ina

6 User Awards and a GEA well done Sylvia, I cannot understand for the life of me why this hasn't received higher. The work and patience that went into the capture is never recognised and in this case neither the quality. It fails me

As Mary says, so well deserved of all the awards and if I had seen it, I would have awarded one too. Stupendous.
