What great action to capture Tom. A super shot.

The last time I saw this was a few years ago now, in the middle of a road I was driving along.

Hi Delia,

These weren't too far from the road I was on either; a totally unexpected moment!

Thanks for your comment! :)
The shot I tried so hard for today! My timing just wouldn't catch them the way I wanted, and eventually they took it off the other side of the tree-line.

Well done on this one, great action shot.
Just noticed this, it's a fabulous shot Tom, wonderful detail. H ope you are well, long time no see.
