(Michael can seek shelter at my place grin.....)
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Astrid, glad you like it....Oh, I don't mind what Michael says really....smile
Don't like the toning , but the idea was good.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Bud, I just thought the sepia suited it.
I hate to agree with Shaw but the toning doesn't do anything for it.
Frank L Croston.: Well I did it to bring you two together,so, a result! Thanks, Bill. smile

I am intrigued at how you captured this Frank.
Frank L Croston.: Well,there were a group of them,on a wooden stump,I set a slowish speed,then walked towards them,they aren't too shy in this park, prefocussed on them,as the G12 is slow at focussing,then when I got too close for them, off they took! I fired the shutter,a lot of luck, a bit hit and miss,but I enjoyed seeing what I got. Thanks, Chad.

Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Martin, I thought so.
