    Nice female pose, although a touch overlapped by the heather roots. No direct sun

      Almost a good one

      Nice one - shows them to be a lot more colourful than perceived at a distance

      This is the money shot of the series - sharp, true colours, noble pose, nicely framed by the foliage....

      Tripod on lens or body?

      Martyn - set up on a gimbal, with a special plate on the lens foot - no way would the camera cope with that weight!

      Canon 400mm + 2xTC + 1Ds = 800mm

      You're getting this stalking lark off to a T. This is my favourite of the bunch as well. How close where you when you took this?

      Another cracker. Love the feather detail, and the heather overlap is only slightly annoying but is almost imperceptible. Hell of a set up to lug around the Heather.!

      My favourite too - something to do with the pink-ish background, I think

      Congratulations. 400/2.8 & 5DMII combo is quite capable of yielding absolutely fantastic results ! Best of luck.
