    Super shot Chocky, shows the beautiful colour detail on the wings.


    How do you keep your camera dry when it tips down?

    There are a lot of very big trees. But I usually pack it away and the bag has a waterproof thingy which covers the whole bag and has it's own pocket

    I have to carry a bin liner in my pocket, as my big lens won't go in the bag without being de-mounted.

    Good Idea. I bought a rucksack waterproof thingy from Millets. It looks more graceful but then it doesn't matter for a chap does it. lol
    I have been on the look out for some sort of thick plastic see-through so I can carry on with my photography, I don't mind getting wet. I waded for nearly and hour in about a foot of water to vido the Little Egret. It's a 5 min film now on DVD with Fingles Cave soundtrack. Wet feet but a nice film

    Thank you for the coment BTW.

    Lovely shot, Chocky. Ii really does give a good look at the patterns and colours and shows how those on the wings and body contrast. Well caught.
