Competitive? Who says?

One of the things that Gaz organised for the day after the wedding was an archery contest.  Despite the fact that it was raining heavily and quite windy quite a few of us took part.  Some were more competitive than others.  Some were more expressive (and therefore more photogenic) than others!  The Best Man clearly thought that at this moment he had the upper hand on a rival: competitive

  4. Is that a cute cartoon squirrel on his T-shirt? Surely there's absolutely no need for the warning "Don't Touch".

    1. I bet there are two more words further down on the t-shirt.

    1. Er well, Kay, I came third after the first round if I remember correctly but then came equal top after the second.

  6. The advantage of shooting in rain and wind is that you can always blame the weather for missing the bull's eye.
    Very good pictures, Graham. Your talent for animal photography is impressive, as I have told you before, but you are very good with people, too.

    1. You're too kind, Meike, and yes, the weather got a lot of the blame (but only for the bad shots!).

  7. I am betting the cute T-shirt read "Don't Touch...My Nuts."
    I haven't had the pleasure of holding a bow and arrow in my hands since university days....I took up archery, golf and lawn tennis as my PE requirements, not wanting to run around in the hot sun claiming I was an athlete.
