Cor! Nature, red in tooth and claw! Fantastic moorhen pics. Territorial dispute probably.....unless they're seasonal staff paid to entertain the kids during school holidays.

Great pictures!
The close-up of the bison is amazing. It feels like you could reach out your hand and touch it!

Penfold, Amazing photos, and I especially like the 1st and 4th.

Well done! :clap: Image Image

Beautiful pictures, Penners! :D if you don't mind me saying though, I prefer it when you don't put any effects on them... the first one's pretty much perfect, can't get any better than that... but that's just me :lol:

Susanne, you really have been to some lovely places!
Listen.

Thanks! :D Not that I can take any credit. With that kind of scenery, you really can't take a bad picture.

So cool Dug! It looks like you had a really good time. Love the photograph in the top picture and the artwork. Did you buy anything?

I keep expecting Captain Kirk and an away team to walk past any minute!

@Catch-up, Yes books, and lots of freebies too I had a great time was getting worried that my case would be over weight, transferred most of my clothes to my backpack, Jim is going to be at Eastercon so any artwork I buy I will be able to get it home as it's in Glasgow next year and Terry is a GOH that's icing on the cake. :dance:

@ Mad, Next year it’s back in the States at Arlington, Virginia, Washington D.C. Nov.6th- 9th

@ SisJen, Boasting a bit I know but here is one of my signed books from Tad at the Con, it had been a while since I had caught with him. (his new series Bobby Dollar: Dirty Streets of Heaven &Happy hour in Hell are good. Image
