    :clap: Yayyyy, shots from LP!

    Love the shots of the duck trying to swallow the fishies! And the colour of the sun hitting the kite is lovely. Glad kundalini got you out shooting. And thanks for posting.

    Anty, I should think that "duck" is a grebe...

    And wow. Good photos. For one who is totally limited to having a crappy, el-cheapo and BROKEN (!) 70-300mm lens, these are UTTERLY impressive!

    As are ALL your photos, and you know that.
    They are all great, even in ugly weather!

    I so like the action in "How dare you...!?" !!
