This set is for Ade (Ade_Osman), who is getting withdrawal symptoms from the lack of bugs and beasties in his part of the UK Smile Yesterday was truly spring-like, blue skies, warm sunshine, and a host of critters came out to play. I spotted/captured a hoverfly, grasshopper, scorpionfly, honey bee, red admiral, bumble bee, harvestman and a micro-fly.
Sorry, Ade, but I have to report that it is a beautiful bright start again this morning, wonder what I can find today?Smile

I agree with Ade I'm also missing them. Super shots that should keep me going for awhile. We had winds of 72mph yesterday and it was a wet journey to work.

V1 is a cracker, V3 and V7 pretty good as well. (Plus - with some of your recent uploads I've felt that the sharpening was excessive, these are much easier on the eye. With the quality that the new camera is producing I really don't think you need to over-sharpen.)
