Magnificent, Morkel. Very well done; couldn't happen to a nicer guy. Just saw the pics in a magazine lying around at the dentist and realised ... WOW, that's Morkel. Now, read this thread. Brilliant stuff, Sir.

I'm a subscriber to an international photography newsletter with Digital Photography School and on one of their topics they feature regular Photography Tips and Tutorials, but the latest newsletter also featured 5 Hot tutorials of which one was 10 Tips for Improving Your Wildlife Photography by a Guest Photographer - Morkel Erasmus or as we know him as Morkel777.
Here is the link: http://digital-photography-school.com/10-tips-for-improving-your-wildlife-photography

Well done Morkel, excellent and handy piece of work :clap: :clap: :clap:
