    They both looked very nice to me, but the size was a little large for my laptop. Is there anyway you could post a smaller size on this thread?

    okay, so now can you tell me how the heck you GOT those? i can't even keep these little stinkers in the VIEWFINDER, much less get that kind of detail and focus on the eye!

    Well, you take your pick re technique, I use two methods, one is more successful than the other

    I wait until I see it looking at me, then press the shutter, whilst of course checking all the relevant data in the viewfinder to ensure that exposure is correct, and sometimes dial in a bit of EV just prior to shooting.

    Other times I sit for hours with a large capacity memory card in the camera, and lose weight whilst frantically following these guys across the sky and surface of the pool shooting whenever i get them in the viewfinder (and sometimes not).

    cheers

    i'm guessing method #2 is by far the more commonly used... :lol:
