Stunning, Adrian, just wished you had cropped the image so that the whole of the beautiful harebell bloom was in it Smile Carol

That is how it was taken CarolGrin

The only cropping done is to make the image 9" x 7", which I think is better for small close-up subjects, rather than the 9" x 6" as taken.
In other words the sides have been slightly reducedWink

A cracking close up of this copulating chalkhill blue couple, I saw a pair at it on Bownham Common but they wouldn't stay still long enough to be photographed!
