    So - without further ado - the winners are ...

    In first place - on 22 points (runaway favourite) - we have Kori with:

    Congratulations to Kori and Colin with your excellent shots!

    This seems my lucky tree for this month again. I'll focus on seascape photography from now on and hopefully to get some nice shots.

    Phew, at least that gives us a chance, there's no messing with that tree, it has strong magic

    No seriously; well done to all the winners.

    You're saying that Kori has a million dead flies in her house? (just kidding!)

    as a matter of fact...there is one flying around me right now...driving me nuts! Grab the swatter and he disappears.... until I put the swatter down! GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

    That reminds me of something from my childhood - I was at a relatives place and there was a fly buzzing around. The relative was an electronics technician and he sprayed it with something that he used - Ether comes to mind, but that sounds a bit too imflammable so it was probably something else. Whatever it was the fly just dropped like a stone and was dead practically before it even hit the ground!

    ... Boy to I wish I could get a hold of a can of that stuff! At home I used to use a cheap and nasty "electric mini tennis racket" - zapped them with a few hundred volts. Worked like a charm, but I kept breaking the darn things - if they made a quality one at 10 times the price I'd be in!
