As Gabor said, an "interesting shot". That must have entailed much pre-thought, planning and I imagine a few mis-cued test firings but you made 'light' work of it eventually!

Well framed for a shot in the dark.

The shovel 'aliengrove', is to shuv all the gear away when the work is done or just to bury the evidence to avoid the risk of further 'exposure'!
