lovely pictures, particularly the second one, the focus on the head is great composition. i still don't understand how people manage to get such great shots when whenever we try they are off like a rocket!

thanks. i suspect most forum members will have already spotted that shot number two isn't in situ. i do have a few good in situ shots of grassies but not many...as you say, they are usually off like rockets!

Ha! yep, I love the composition in the grassy shot, it is a great image, but I did immediately think it had been 'posed' . Wink Great shots Tim, I should make an effort to get out and about more, I bought a lot of new camera equipment for aviation photography last year, it is very suited to wildlife photography too.

I have thousands more, I should go through them and pick the best for Flickr. 

I was posting them to Facebook, having amassed the maximum following of 'friends' I became so disillusioned with the whole experience I pulled the plugs lol.

i think the worst thing about Facebook is that it has made me so, so lazy. if i can't just click a 'like' button i can't be arsed responding to posts! there have been loads of posts on here over the past year where people have done something really interesting and taken the time to share it and i've read the post, instinctively gone to click the like button, realised it's not there then not bothered responding! it's awful really and i wholeheartedly apologise to everyone for my laziness.

Shame on you Tim! 

It is a good point though, some forums are adding 'like buttons' so people can like posts. We can all get conditioned into the same habit I think. I was coming on here for months and saying absolutely nothing at all when I was using Facebook. We get so use to the like button we feel lost without it!

Hi everyone

Further to comments made re Farcebook, may I remind you all that the forum does have Like & Share buttons for Farcebook and other social media thingies! (See the bottom of a topic immediately above the Quick Reply panel).
While we seem to be rather small and, of course, select band nowadays, perhaps using those will attract more people in any event.
