Thought I'd go with something a very common, but very difficult to shoot as they don't sit still for any length of time and because of their long legs, trying to get they whole of them sharp is a near impossibility, hence the reason I concentrated on the body & head in these images. Enjoy or run behind the settee and hide Wink

And there was me thinking they were insects Tongue

What an incredibly high standard of images that have been posted so far, especially like the one of Kaybee's Grandson.......Well done guys and gals, think I might have to post a few more to in order to compete later on Wink
