What do you want, a medal?

Very nice set, especially #1, #2 (though shame you didn't get all of the second puffin) & #7 (horizon's slightly off).

Think thats a crab spider. They hide in similar coloured flowers to catch pollen eaters/collectors.

No# 5's nice, although it's a shame about the blown sky.

What happened to the other Wildlife thread?

Some great Puffin shots there ghost ... catching flying birds well in the frame is very tricky and you've dopne very well there...

I rememebr seeing a segment on Pufins in a docco a while back and recall thinking that they were much swifter than I thought they would be...

Thanks Fozzy. I did put on my flickr description it might be a goose.

The bird has also now been identified. It's either a Schalow's or a Livingstone's turaco. Anyone know how you can tell the difference. I've ggogled, and they look the same to me!!
