    That is gold. Such a flurry of activity. You are Captain right-place, right-time.

    Ah - it is no great feat of timing - just exploiting the strength of digital. I would have taken as many as 150 shots of those birds. Digital is just perfect for wildlife, you can just shoot endlessly, and pick through them all afterwards. And it doesn't matter if not one of them turns out! I am _so_ over film. I have a heap where they are all sitting in 2 amazingly long rows, but they are portrait oriented and I have been focusing on 16x9 landscape framing exclusively (as you may have noticed). I might do a pair of images sometime - or find some way of posting them sitting - cause they are quite impressive.
