Skimming the surface

We were really lucky this guy gave a great show for us when he saw we were taking pictures

Canon EOS 60D 1/8000 second F/5.6 ISO 200 43 mm


Making an effort to return to AM3 after a bit of an absence, it's really nice to see photo's from all contributors and I will try to comment when I can. If I offer criticism I do so only to help and I do not wish to cause offence. My photography tends to be from my travels, as well as my passion which is wildlife and landscape. I hope you enjoy what you see.
Thanks for your comments I'm really grateful for them and welcome constructive feedback.
