    I'm not sure I'm going to be able to improve on these - spent 3 hours (!!) playing with these as the little guys darted back and forth. No detail at all captured on anything less than 1/5000 - DoF needed to be lengthened to try and get a workable focal range to f9 and 10 which meant even though in direct and brilliant sunshine ISO 2000 had to be used, this gives the usual issues of noise and loss of definition, anyway I think they are better than the last offering

    Trust me they are blindingly quick - the initiation of flight is not visible to the eye at all, you see a face at the hole then hear wings behind you!

    wow, amazing









    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.
    Winne the Pooh - A A Milne



    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.
