We were all about the American breakfast at this point. I (Jen) almost lost my mind when we found this place.

Hennessy is one of the oldest and most famous manufacturers of cognac, a type of French distilled wine, or brandy. The company was born when the Irishman Richard Hennessy[1], who had been a mercenary for the French king, was compensated with land in the town of Cognac in France in 1765 and started a trading business, initially sending liquor back to Irish friends and relatives. His son, James Hennessy, expanded the business into the brandy production with which the town is now synonymous. The business was renamed James (or Jacques) Hennessy and Co, a name the company retains today. The company has been managed by successive generations of Hennessys (now in the eighth generation). Ownership has changed over the years, however. In 1971 Hennessy merged with Moët et Chandon. In 1987 the drinks group then merged with fashion house Louis Vuitton to create what is now the world’s largest luxury goods business: LVMH.
Hennessy currently sells about three million cases of cognac each year. Recent innovations include trying to broaden the appeal of the drink beyond its traditional base of older drinkers, by introducing new products such as "Pure White" and "Fine de Cognac" and marketing them accordingly. Cocktail recipes have also been popularized, such as combining Hennessy with Red Bull energy drink to form Crunk Juice, a cocktail popularized by crunk-artists Lil Jon, the Eastside Boyz, and the Ying Yang Twins. A drink called Sin, made popular by Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, includes equal proportions of Hennessy and gin. Rappers Xzibit, DMX, 2Pac, Nas, 50 Cent, Nate Dogg, Snoop Dogg, The Game, Kid N’ Play, P.Diddy, Kanye West and Kano also frequently talk of drinking straight Hennessy in their lyrics, as does the group Digital Underground in its song "The Humpty Dance". Mac Dre is known for coining the popular term in relation to Hennessy, as ‘Heem’. In the James Bond film On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, Bond, rescued by a St. Bernard in Switzerland, curtly dismisses the dog and tells him to bring Five Star Hennessy. It is also commonly mixed with Hpnotiq to form a popular drink called Incredible Hulk.

Taken at WWT Steart Marshes

This was one of those shots that happened by accident. Low light, slow shutter, fast moving birds and panning with a long lens; recipe for disaster. But I found this and had a play, I think it really shows the movement of the birds.
