    Random few

    Was waiting in a carpark next to a patch of flowers and why waste the opportunity.

    Got a few strange looks and a few "what am I doing" type questions.

    Then there was this pretty young lady who came up, held out her iphone and asked if I could take a pic of her against the pond behind the parking area.

    Thanks Greg, Steve, Paul.

    Yes, 4 and 5 do appear best of the lot. Thanks for the input.

    Next time this happens to me, I must say "Sure no problem, may I take one with mine too?"
    Has to be the easiest way for a shy guy/gal to get a picture

    Doesn't have to be a pretty young lady (in fact it's usually a couple), but of course (for me) that helps

    Your time certainly wasn't wasted Bobo, the series is up to your usual high standard.

    Thanks Joe.

    Thanks Dave - that thought only came up afterwards. Aging brain = slow reactions.

    Shooting bugs and birds is not the same. Bugs we slow right down, birds is like a 1000 times more hyper. So that might have affected the reaction times.

    Another nice set Bobo! Have you considered croping out most, but not all of the out-of-focus foreground in the first one? It looks to be sharp enough the handle the crop.
