Some great shots there, and from close range as well by the look of it. I like the bonus fly in the first shot

Excellent shots Sindri. I really like the chick with the fuzzy mohawk.

Great work with the pet project!

Those are beyond excellent Sindri. I always look forward to your posts. Just when I think I am getting the hang of things you show me new levels to strive for.
