  9. ...beautiful series. In the second gull shot it looks like he's up to no good, even growing little horns on his head! ;-) Love the beauty of the swan...

  10. Keith - wonderful shots as usual. Isn't it great to see the Grebes in their courting colours again. Sorry you missed the weed dance - hopefully there will be more of the same for you to capture.
