Thank you dear friend!

Unfortunately this month and next one I am extremely busy and so I would not be able to help or to moderate (in case I may win) so cannot participate this time!

But thank you very much for your invitation message and like

Thank you Thomas, I tried maybe 30- 40 times before I could get this shot! Fortunately he was flying in circle for at least 15 minutes!

Have a nice evening!
