Photographs 1,2 and 3 are pretty mediocre Ed SmileSmileSmileSmileSmileSmileSmileSmileSmileSmileSmile, however the last image is a cheer masterpiece. One that truly draws ones attention, and fulfils each and every criteria for the 'Silly Sunday' title.

Fine shots of the mating couples, Ed, but V 4 for it's quirkiness is my favourite today.......a missing hand but still pointing out the way to go.
As well the fingers are horizontal and not vertical........might have suggested something else.

A fantastic set, Ed, with V.1 being the outright winner. What a shame a wretched tick has got in on the act Sad Carol

the adult series is fantastic, v2 being my favourite for the glorious light, no tick Smile which seems a bit distracting in the act and v4 is a completely new critter to mee, would it be the dreaded for headed maxi slug ?
