Thank you :) It was a bit tricky balancing on the sloping window ledge to do it but I was really pleased with the result.

This is lovely. I know exactly the place where you took this picture. Tricky... very tricky to balance and shoot. Nice job. Did you have to wait long for this picture?

Thanks :) Yes, I had to wait a while, which involved me falling off the slope a few times and getting back on again. I was waiting for him to turn to face me. I'm glad I waited :D

It was great watching them from there but it was rather tricky taking photos without slipping off the windowsill :D

No :laughing: I was watching through a tiny bit above the water line at the top of the "underwater window". Dirt on the window and balancing on a sloping window sill, holding on with one hand and trying to work the camera with the other made it a bit difficult but it wasn't dangerous. I just risked looking silly if I fell off!

It was a bit tricky and precarious! I had to balance on the sloping lower ledge of the underwater viewing window, hold on to the side with one hand and try to aim my camera steadily through the little gap of glass between the surface of the water and the top of the window.The glass was a bit dirty in places too. I was really pleased with the result though.
