    The are the ultimate sun worshipers and with face directed toward the sun, they can sure strike a lovely pose!

    You master the light perfectly and that's what it's all about I think and of course the posing:D

    Agreed. They all look serene, almost as if sleeping.

    Thanks, Rob. Yes, they do seem to have their moments of serenity and move in a very graceful and elegant manner when they're in this peaceful state. Wonderful to photograph!

    The third one in the first set is very nice Tony...so sharp...you can almost smell the fish on his/her breath...
