I don't like it - it shows too much talent Wink
Fabulous - of course! The wings are quite extraordinary.

The background obviously meets the Big O's approval tonight Brian!Wink A marvellous close up focusing on the hoverfly, the detail and clarity is exceptional which is no less than we've come to expect from a man of your legendary prowess
