A large Elephant Hawkmoth perched on some Lavender captured in the garden a few weeks back.

Many thanks for all the comments and sentiments on yesterday's image of 'Jenny's Meadow'. I personally put in very little work on it, it was more my wife's and a few others dedicated voluntary work the got the meadow to where it is now.....But I have passed on your good wishes and the comments made.

Hedgehog Update
For those interested, the hedgehogs in the garden seem to be doing well V2 shows a very low resolution snapshot taken from the CCTV system where we had 4 individuals at the feeding station in the garden last night. 1 in the feeding box itself and 3 others snuffling around it. Still loathe to go out and take any images of them with the main cameras for fear of spooking them with the flash.......When I feel the time is right I will have a go though, so as they say, watch this space Wink

So beautiful and detailed and the colour is superb! We found a huge caterpillar in a neighbour's garden but sadly haven't seen the moth! Love those little chaps in v2.

a truly beautiful moth that I have yet to discover! stunning capture.
Sigh, I got something to share as there was a small discussion here recently.
In La Rochelle there is a small but interesting botanical garden. this weekend there was some art exposition going on in the garden. Well we had a look around and a lady was showing very big insect photos. Of course i'm interested. Hmm I say,
- well masked this one... but that one here that scorpionfly looks very dead, so does this rose chafer and the bee here.
- Yes, they are all dead!
- ooooh but .... why?
- well I wanted them on white background and anyhow they move all the time if they are alive!! (here flies my illusion about the masking)
- yes sure but if you are quick enough there is no problem, really unless you want a midge in flight ( has never stopped me I think... and ... none of these shots were class ADE giant closeups)
- oh no they would never be sharp (SadSadSadSadSadSad really? I say nothing)
- well, I said, I know a fellow on my forum who puts them in the fridge and then takes them 3 times the size TongueTongueTongueTongue
- interesting she says... but how do I get them in there!!!!
went off to take some flowers and very much alive bees.

May I have some of your rain please? still desperately dry...
