A great portrait Tom
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Chris
They look like plush toys, Tom!
Tom Wilson: You're right, Ginnie - they ought not to exist as real birds!
They have to be one of the most attractive birds
Tom Wilson: Certainly one of the most unusual, Martin.
Superbe gros plan de ces macareux, bravo !
Tom Wilson: Merci, Martine.

Weird, but beautiful birds. I saw some at a distance in Ireland. Great shot.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Louis - the place to see them up close is certainly the Farne Islands.
Nicely done, Tom, they are very odd birds.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Frank - they certainly are!

Great little birds to photograph, we were there a month ago but did not do very well in the image department.
Tom Wilson: Hello Les! Nice to see you back on Shutterchance - or have you not been away and I haven't notice? A pity your trip was not so successful from the photography pov - the weather was dull and grey for me, but the light was good enough. You'll have to have another go - although figuring out the weather in the north-east is always a problem!

Hi Tom I have been away for a couple of years at least but trying to get back into it all now.

The weather on the Farnes was too good, very contrasty and bright. I just had some probles with different images.
Tom Wilson: Good to see those great images of yours again, Les.
Another fine catch...
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Larry.
