Post Emperor Rescue and Southern Hawker
Hi All,

I have finally got around to posting up some pics from last month.
Went out with a film crew from C4 on the 17 July, on the promise of helping them find something to film in flight. A trip to a nearby local pond proved a winner, with a fairly early mature Southern Hawker. He obliged us with a lot of flying in and out of a very shady channel, which called from some horribly high ISO settings, but other than that it was a result!. Also had to rescue a drowning Emperor using one of the film crews poles, he had been savagely attacked by another emperor and was in his death throws in the middle of the pond. I popped him on a stump to dry out, and took a photo in exchange for my services :)
