Quite well done Fred, the 40-150 was a good choice of lens for this project and surely a lot more maneuverable than were what the cameraman in the last image was hauling around.

Really well done, Fred. My first reaction was, "Wow, these are really bright." Then, "Hmmm, it was a really bright day and Fred nailed the exposure."

Be cautious, though. She can obviously take care of herself.

Great shots and a very tough sport to compete in.

#20 is armed and dangerous...

Caught the action well and picked up some vivid colour. Nice shots.
