That's very good Alan. It looks as if it was hovering while you took the shot.

That’s the type of shot that’s on my wish list, but I don’t think it will ever happen.

Very well taken.

Rather stunning capture. I get the sense of stillness and movement at the same time.

Really good. Having had a go recently I appreciate the fact that you even get it in shot, let alone focus.
