    Well captured Paul.
     
  8. Excellent, well done. Always a pleasure to see parrots flying free.

    If you don't mind me asking whereabouts was this taken please?
     
  9. Great shot Paul!
     
  10. Hi John - It was taken during the 'Birds in Action' show at Woburn Safari Park.

    Not too far from you - Just a couple of junctions up the M1...

  11. I'll bear that in mind Paul for when the weather improves (?). Thanks once again.
     
  12. 'IF' mate, not 'WHEN'... This is the UK after all!

  13. Yep, keep blaming it on luck, otherwise you are looking at some major dinero for lense(s), tripod, gimbal head, ... if you get "hooked" on birds, especially BIF's.:cool: 
     
  14. I can imagine... My Motorsport stuff costs me enough as it is... I think I will remain the 'occasional' Wildlife photog!

    Thanks for your comments
