Amazing colours
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

Many thanks David It was most pleasing to have a burst of winter morning transient light, as the geese flew past.

The action, the light and the textures are what grab me.

Many thanks for your amusing and kind words Paul 😊 I remember the old lady who lived next door to me, when I was a kid, had ducks 'flying' on her wall!

Many Thanks David I have found, from repeated studies there, that Canada Geese will take flight often in groups. One of them will increase the volume and speed of it’s ‘honking’ to communicate it’s suggestion for the group of an imminent launch. Handy to know when to start tracking their take-off, whilst one maybe distracted by other birds on the marsh
