A gorgeous Demoiseille on a lovely contrasting perch.
I do want to take away the lower blade of grass though as your b/g is perfect.
V2 - well I've seen it all now! A very silly label for silly Sunday!

A well detailed shot here Ed.

and not the polo shirt !!

Whilst the Banded Damsel is quite stunning and wonderfully captured Ed, its the label that does it for me... Superb

I'm afraid my things have to be a lot dirtier than dirty before I wash them.
