  12. Hi Bob,
    Super images, they can really merge into the background and virtually vanish.
    You stay safe

  22. Love these! I bet it was almost easier to spot his reflection in the water than the real bird hidden in the reeds. Beautiful pictures!

  26. Bob - a wonderful set of shots. Is it just me, or does he seem to be crouching to aid with the camouflage?
