Mick, you found the best story! I'll tell the owner next time I see him Smile

Took this one the last day of September at the mozzie lake.. I hope to find the very last ones this weekend and that will be it I'm afraid.

I can go off folk you know......As I sit here watching my poor hedgehogs having to scrape a living in the bleedin' rain yet again, despite forecasts of a frost......Makes me wonder if these weather forecasters every bother sticking their heads out the window?

Wow that blue is amazing and so electric. I think this must be an adonis blue as the colour is far too vivid to be a common blue
