Many thanks dear John and Donna for your appreciations!!
Definitely go back there, when time permits, but it's always just a stroke of luck manage to photograph it, sometimes expect even hours without there being a passage!

Excellent shots, Alex. Lucky that you got such a beautiful young bird at such close range. Keep watching him - they are very regular in habits, so if you see it at a particular time and place, it is very likely that it would exactly be there on the following days too. Best of luck, and we hope to see more.

Many thanks dear Raghu for your kin words!!

I hope certainly photograph it again, it's just a matter of free time ;)

I improved the level of PP lights, and I think that the series is now better.

What do you think?

That is just one fantastic series of shots Alex; you are showing all of us what the FZ150 can produce in the right hands.

I do think you have improved the shots with the additional PP.

Jim, my dear friend, you are too generous, and I heartily thank you. :)
I feel at home with my monitor, I have the brightness turned up too in the second series, perhaps the ideal is somewhere in between, but I do not want this thread overloading of images, when I found the right balance, I post them!
Thanks again
