Some shots of the wildlife we saw in Norfolk, Great Crested Grebes on the River Ant near Barton Broad, Grey Seals on the beach near Horsey and Turnstones at Salthouse.

Grebe shots were taken from a boat we hired for a few hours.

Some of these are nice captures, Dan.

A very good set of pictures, super sharp and great detail. I especially like 1, 4,5,6.

They're nearly all tremendous shots Dan though I'd chop the top off the selective focus seal shot, I cant decide if that grey seal in the top right needs to be on or off but the water definately needs to go.
The only one thats not up to the rest is the last one, you've clipped the Turnstones tail off.

First one is by far the best of the bunch, it gets a 20 from me.

You don't think I know that? Problem was he was only about 5 foot away and they don't stop running about. This was the best for focusing, but not for framing. Perhaps I'll clone in a tail from another pic.

I wouldn't worry about it Dan, the other one is still much better than any of my Turnstone pics and as for my comment I hasten to add that I did miss the smile off the end of the sentance

Do you agree that the water needs taking off the top of the seal pic though:

The seal pup is cool as a cucumber, striking a very relaxed pose (and my fave). Did you bribe him with a fish?

Great set.

All of them are terrific, but the first is very special.
