There were some males too, but pretty far out. These ladies were a little more accommodating.
I don't care for the high angle here, but there was no other approach available so I took what I could get.


1. Nice do!

These shots would have benefitted from a circular polarizer.

Brian, nice shots. I am left wondering if that is their natural look or the equivalent of a "bad hair day" look. :biggrin-93:

Nice exposures. I like #3. I have difficulty getting clean shots of these guys under similar conditions.

No doubt. My excuses are; the cost of a decent one and that a cheap one would likely multiply this lenses problems.

I think 2 and 3 would be fairly normal but 1 is definitely a bad hair day.
