I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!

Quite an interesting shot. How many bales does the arrow go through?

@standley: Actually, he will fire the arrow at a target somewhere to my left of where I took the shot! The bales are just in storage there. It looks like he's lining up to shoot through them, but look at his body position... he is actually standing at 90 degrees to his target...
