    Brilliant capture Roy.

  • Many thanks Colin – bought myself a cheap wireless shutter release about a week ago and have been a resident in the lounge looking out to the deck just waiting for the right time to click ! Camera set on tripod works well.

  • Thank you so much Catherine for your lovely comments and favourite. Trying to catch them in flight, you can click off 15/20 frames and only get one of any use so I’m pleased with this one.
