Well spotted Frank. He's in his element out there
Frank L Croston.: I had been tracking him,Chris, else I may not have seen him.
Man. Talk about scale!
Frank L Croston.: The scale of this place overwhelms,Ginnie.

Just imagine Frank, this is what Droitwich might look like after a nuclear war.
Frank L Croston.: I thought all those pictures were after a nuclear war? Dear me....
The eye is overloaded with subtle colours shapes and textures - wonderful
Frank L Croston.: Thanks very much,Martin,this place can overload you.
If you had got a bit nearer to the hawk I might be able to see it, try harder next time.
Frank L Croston.: Too fussy you Fuji guys....smile
I'll have to go and put my eye drops in and have another look. Spectacular scene with or without a hawk
Frank L Croston.: Go on then...Thanks, Bill.
...easier than for him to spot a rabbit in such a landscape, Frank
Frank L Croston.: You never know, Juan Carlos...smile

A bit like spot the ball only more interesting!
Frank L Croston.: Much more, Mike!
Doesn't he have a great perch. That eye is not going to miss a thing that moves.
Frank L Croston.: Nope', he'll have it all covered...smile
Love the colours in this Frank......an excellent shot!
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Martin. Much appreciated.

Great shot. Such absolute fabulous colours. I spotted the hawk. What a place to live in.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Astrid, yes indeed, this would be nice to see every day.
Well spotted indeed Frank. What a superb image!

Magnificent - another one for your book. The bird looks a bit big to be a hawk, but then the distance in 2D can be misleading.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks very much, Louis. He looked more Hawklike when flying.
He'll have no trouble spotting his prey from that lofty perch, Frank. What an incredible vista you've captured here.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you Beverley,he must have had some view.
somewhere in the middle Frank! A lovely image Frank! bestseller I would say!
Frank L Croston.: Summit on the left, Aderonke...I doubt it. smile
Magnificent image Frank, perhaps the best of the series. Do I see the Hawk sitting on that little summit just left of centre?
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Brian,indeed you do. smile

Frank L Croston.: Only slightly better than mine,Robbyne...smile
