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.

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
