I like this one Stuart. Nice sharp action shot with a good DOF. The exposure and lighting is nicely done too.
I am still a little tight on free time but will try and look more into your gallery as soon as I can. By the way what is the title of your 1st image that you mentioned to me ID665474 because I can't find that number yet. Bill J. #667165

Hi Bill,

Thanks for your kind comments. I have added the first shot to my gallery (slowly getting the hang of things). So whenever you have time it would be great to get your feedback, but no rush.

Very nice clarity and color in this wonderful stop-action shot Stuart. Congrats on making Editor's First Picks!

I think they are some kind of Dove. Maybe a Mourning Dove. #4420377

Thank you Marta and Joni for your generous support! I'm slightly overwhelmed that it has got this far, and I am not entirely sure what it all means but I will enjoy the ride :-0
