Not a Pheasant Plucker

Not as sharp as i'd have liked but I was leaning out of a hide and shooting across a lake at the time. I couldn't even change the settings.

A bit of a Tease ... l1/200

The low light was teasing,

A Couple of Charmers

A pair of Dabchicks or Little Grebe

1/32 @ f5.6, ISO 400, 400mm
I hesitated to list the settings for this one, it came out better than it should for a 32nd
but this was the only chance I had, a coot chased them off before I could reset.
