A nice one too. I'll need to start the feeding again as they are starting to flow through here again. Did you use a flash with this one?

Great post. Your flash really picked up some nice detail and colours.

Very nice background - I've found flash to be indispensable in backlit situation...

Thanks, Hung & Don. Don, it's an old Canon 420 EX. I use negative flash compensation so the light is primarily ambient.
