Peter -

Great shot! Wonderful colors, sharp; love the DOF - the blurred foreground and background - great stuff!

This guy is a real harlequin.

This would make a terrific cover for a greeting card, one of dozens in a series - one shot per week covering all four seasons - 'the birds of your area'; it's a theme I've been kicking around lately - something to think about, eh?

That 50-200 is a real performer - in hands like yours anyway.

Dear All,

As my husband Peter has had to go out of the country to work for a few days I am thanking you all on his behalf and have passed your comments on to him.

Kindest regards: Karen French
