G'day WB

Okay - now that we've seen the training video ... landing technique taken care of, wheels up/down as the case may be ... where are the next ones of the catch - pickup -power climb and the inevitable squallbes from the hangers-on trying to force the poor bird to drop its catch ?????

Other than that - excellent image, good timing etc etc
Regards, Phil

Aaaaahhhh WB

My eyesight &/or my system must have been playing up yesterday ... as I could only see one image > and now I can see 4 images and they are a 'real-good-mate' collection of shots that tell the full story

ps- One of the things I find while using USB-wireless modem is the [slow] speed of downloading of stuff / images is sometimes 'excruciating'

While all the phone companies / ISPs here in Oz all lead a merry dance claiming 'the best & fastest' download services, that might apply in the big-smoke, but out in the country, download speeds are always variable, and often mediocre

Many is the time I click onto a posting here and discover that it covers multiple images - then I see the top 20% of an image appear > so I go to the kitchen and turn on the electric jug, make a cuppa, and come back to see if the image(s) have appeared on the screen. Mostly they have, but often I will get the top 1/2 of 3-4 images and nothing else, but the browser says 'done' > so that's the end of viewing that thread

Very frustrating

Regards, Phil
