Great-looking pair, they'll probably start with their mating dances soon.

Thanks for the kind comments Dave, Axel - appreciated.
Unfortunately the courting displays were to far offshore to obtain any decent images :(
Better luck next time ;)

Always lovely to see - but they do love to stay out of reach, just to annoy us when we want to get an image.  They are very flighty over here - unless you're in a boat, then it seems you become almost invisible. :wink:
