This is superb Sylvia - I went to Corrymony to see them lekking but they were so far away I didn't get anything even half decent! You've got a beauty here!

Clearly this took some taking and involved a long walk and great patience. It's also very very well executed. Should gain a bucketful of votes and so here's one from me. Well done.

Another top notch shot in a natural setting and under difficult circumstances, Sylvia: your work is always a pleasure to view and is so inspiring.

Well done Sylvia, makes that early morning rise, hassle at the airport and wind and rain all so worth while!! Super shot, you must be thrilled and rightly so. Hope the trip to the Farne Islands goes even better. Ann.

Love the contrast between the detailed lower 1/3 and the blurred distance. The ground sits perfectly on the join and in comical pose, pin sharp with beautiful water drops on the feathers. Magnificent Sylvia! Smile

Another gem Sylvia - a great detailed pose- and I like the detailed ridge breaking into the perfect bg.

An outstanding image of this handsome gamebird taken in inclement weather conditions, the detail in the plumage is immaculate
