Needless to explain, the photo says it all.

Hey, hold on... right person at the right place at the right time? hmmm... feeling jealous of you.

When you said falconry, I thought you visited Hawk Conservancy. Now I realise that the conservancy itself flew down to Hursley. You can not be luckier.

And spitfire! Although I am not an aircraft or war-history buff, the name "spitfire" itself appealed to me and hearing the history of spitfire (from a buff) makes it something special to me. And see who is there enjoieing all these! I can not be more envious ;o)

God, it is not fair on your part (lol)

(Waiting to see more posts-n-pix and preparing myself to be more jealous)

goodie day,

Why did you even try photographing the spitfire with a 18-55.
Even if you did photograph, why did you ever post it ???
