Good Day to you all at ePz

Thank you all for taking the time out to view, comment and vote on my upload yesterday.

Todays image again comes from my archives and I reckon needs a airing.

I hope that you have a great day ahead. For me a good walk is on the cards in order to blow away a few cobwebs which are starting to emerge here and there.

Regards as Always Nathan

Lovely contrast between the sleek, shiny bug and the rough wood.

There's nothing wrong with archive diving Nathan, we can find some real treasures in there. I will be doing lots of it after next Thursday when surgery will prevent me from being able to wield the camera for several weeks.

Hope you blow your cobwebs away ... just remember that dark corners aren't dark anymore if you shine a torch into them. And walks in nature are excellent torches Smile
