No manipulation, no stacking trickery, just straight out the camera, a quick sharpen, add a border and voilą Tongue

Taken down on my beloved Somerset Levels last year, note the glass used, makes for a super macro tool albeit a bit heavy, but great when you can't get close to the dragons because of hot weather etc. Smile

Thanks for looking.....Ade

I thought you had taken this this year, Ade Wink. Quite a number to be seen around now, but very flighty. Carol
