Layer upon layer - excellent picture. You say hi to Cath from me when the 2 of you are having a beer tonight.
Mary MacADNski: We live far from each other, Louis, and I'm working today and evening at beer time. But we'll have a chat on the phone in a bit.

I hope your sister cath has a great day, will you be together?

I like to swarming birds like this. I like the way that they have grouped themselves nicely over one cloud band.
Mary MacADNski: They're on their way home to roost. It's a great life.

Your reward would have been worth staying out a bit late. Lovely capture. Happy Birthday Cath
Mary MacADNski: Sunset on the beach is certainly a great reward.
Happy Birthday Cath. I am amazed how they fly without crashing into each other, we have lanes on roads and still manage to hit each other.
Mary MacADNski: Birds are so amazing. To watch black birds swooping in their murmurations is always so breathtaking. These flights home to roost are amazing too, birds from every directions heading to one spot.

Beautiful! Happy birthday to your sister smile
Mary MacADNski: I'll make sure she reads these good wishes.
That's a very nice birthday card Marysmile
Mary MacADNski: I've sent her two others, one by snail mail and one a song and photo. She's special.
Very nice shot Mary.
Mary MacADNski: Thanks, Bernie. We were on a boat and doing the same thing - coming in at the end of a beautiful day.
Cracking shot...lovely.
Mary MacADNski: There are always sights to see when you're out on a boat.

The birds the birds happy birthday Cath
Mary MacADNski: She will be happy to hear all these good wishes and my brothers are going to be demanding I mention their birthdays.
The birds are an added bonus to this lovely sunset capture, Mary.
Best wishes to your special sister, Cathy, on birthday.
Mary MacADNski: Thanks, Beverly.
Lovely shot, Mary. I hope Cath has a happy birthday and you enjoyed your chat.
Mary MacADNski: We did have our chat and bemoaned that we won't see each other for a while. Work gets in the way of life sometimes.
Well caught Mary..in the right spot at the right time.
Mary MacADNski: I was on a boat coming back to the harbour.
You had a great sky to set this lot off against Mary.
Mary MacADNski: I was on a boat and it was a lovely sunset cruise coming back home.
Terrific shot, Mary - definitely a likey for me smile There's one bird low down, which looks like a plume of smoke on the horizon, which I think could cloned out, but otherwise I can't suggest anything else to improve it! And a happy birthday to Cath - I hope you'll print this so she can hang it on the wall smile
Mary MacADNski: I like your idea about cloning out that bird. Cath has responded to all the good wishes. To make a likey, you must go to the photo, go to my account on the top right and press the plus sign beside likey. It shows up on the photo for evermore. Yeah!
Fabulous shot Mary. It certainly does
Mary MacADNski: Thanks so much.
Love the colours. Good weekend Mary
Mary MacADNski: Thank, Albert.
Beautiful present!
Mary MacADNski: Gracias, Armando

It is a very pretty picture, Mary. Is this the wave that we perceive in the distance? ...
Mary MacADNski: I can not find the photo in my files but when I do I will answer your question. I can't tell what it is.
excellent shot....
Mary MacADNski: Thanks, Rob.
